Mac Mini Price Factors
If you have the AC adapter or accessories like a wireless keyboard or mouse, you might be able to get more money – typically around $10 or $20 for each accessory.
If you have the original packaging, it’s a smart idea to let the buyer know – some will pay an extra $10 or so for it. Note that while accessories and packaging can net more money, some buyers will pay less if your Mac Mini has a personalized engraving.
Condition is a major factor. The above prices are for good condition items. Expect to get 15-20% less for each downgrade in condition.
