Apple Offering Up to $1,000 of Trade-in Value for M1 MacBooks Towards Purchase of New MacBook Pros

Apple is offering customers up to $1,000 of trade-in value for the M1 MacBook Pro and ‌M1‌ MacBook Air, giving customers who purchased the first round of Apple silicon Macs an incentive to upgrade to the new, more powerful MacBook Pros.

The new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros are no jokes when it comes to price. The 14-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,999, with the highest-end 16-inch MacBook Pro racking up a $6,099 price tag. The new laptops, powered by either the M1 Pro or M1 Max chips, also introduce a completely new design, featuring smaller bezels, an all-black keyboard, redesigned internals, and more.

As is always the case with Apple device trade-ins, the exact value will differ depending on the device's condition, when it was introduced, and its specific specifications. For customers with the MacBook Pro with the ‌M1‌ chip and 8-cores of CPU and GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 2TB of storage, Apple is offering up to $1,000 for trade-in. It seems as though that the amount of RAM the MacBook has does not impact the trade-in value a customer is ultimately quoted.

Customers can use Apple's interactive trade-in panel during checkout for a new MacBook Pro to get the exact trade-in value their device has. To catch up on everything Apple announced during its "Unleashed" event, be sure to check out our comprehensive coverage.

Why would anyone ever use their trade-in service. A private sale would yield substantially more cash in hand, to put towards the replacement.
Because it's simpler, quicker, and doesn't involve having to deal with potential scammers, like selling privately might. The good news for anyone who does sell privately is that the trade in give a hard floor price to your sale - nobody can really bid lower than the trade in value, can they?

Don't forget the M1 MBA is still plenty good and beats the pants out of most laptops of similar price range.

Apple is offering me $880 for my M1 MBP 8GB 512GB. I'd normally just sell it myself, but It's a decent trade-in value. If I put it on eBay, I'd have to pay fees and shipping, which would end up making the value not much better.

It's tempting...

Because it's so much easier to just let Apple have it. Less risk, less chance of scammers, less chance of a return/refund. Sure you get a bit less money from Apple, but there's no 10% eBay fee and no chance the buyer is going to contact you three weeks later and tell you he doesn't want it, and to give him his money back. I'll sell to Apple all day long and be done with it.

Then you need to factor-in eBay fees, delivery, risk of being scammed etc.
This x 1000.

eBay will always side with the buyer so it is very easy to get scammed there.
