Make sure your laptop is ready for sale by restoring factory settings and removing any personal data from the internal hard drive. Use an external hard drive to back up photos, music, videos and other important data.
Once you have removed all data from the device, be sure to make it look as clean and like-new as possible - remove any stickers or decals and clean it with a screen wipe. Round up all of the laptop's accessories such as the power cable too (you can check the laptop's user guide to remind yourself which accessories were included in the original packaging).
Once your laptop is ready for sale, you're ready to create your listing! You'll need to be as accurate with your item description as possible - buyers will appreciate your honesty. Make sure to take several photos of your laptop with a clear background, including some that depict damage or general wear.
Search on eBay for laptops of the same model and condition to get a good idea of how other sellers are valuing theirs. Look out for certain specifications too, such as screen size, RAM and operating system (e.g. Windows 10, macOS Sierra, Linux). A laptop with a 15" screen would normally sell for more than a laptop of the same model with a 13" screen. Similarly, 32GB RAM memory should make your laptop more valuable than a model with less.
If you have a specific price in mind for your laptop, you may want to choose the fixed-price listing option over an auction-style listing. You never know though: an auction listing could fetch more than your original estimate, so experiment with your listings and see which method is more successful.
Once you have provided the item description, you will see a recommended price, which can be a good indication of how much your laptop is worth.
Laptops are in high demand on eBay. As long as you include a detailed and accurate description, plenty of photos and value your laptop competitively, you should have no problem making a sale.
