No. Your best bet is to sell your iMac and buy a refurb laptop.

That's not exactly what the OP asked, he wanted to know if he could take his iMac and trade for another computer. At least that's what I understood.
So you're certain he won't be interested in Apple Store credit from Apple for his old Mac?

Not certain about what he may want but I am certain that he can get more from a private sale than a few pennies from Apple's store credit?

Yes, you can maximize your profit by selling privately, but that wasn't what he asked. Some people consider that more of a hassle. I just answered his question. They offer store credit for old devices so I posted the link.

I misunderstood what he asked for. He said "trade in" and I thought of a computer trade, never thought of store credit which was not part of his question.

Yeah, I'm definitely all for selling privately. I sold my iPhone 4 on Craigslist after about 30 minutes. Took less than ten minutes to set up the account and place the ad. Not sure why people think it's such a hassle, but some do.

Yes Europa, I have never had any issues selling my iPhones. As long as one is able to spot scams and things like that, it is easy! Some of my family always ask me why I send so much on new iPhones, they don't realize I break even and even make money doing this every year.

I do the same thing! I always pocket about $50 every year after upgrading.

Is there anyway I can do same? Would like to sell my iPhone 4 and get an upgrade if possible. But how easy cab that happen? I'm from Nigeria.

When the new iPhone comes out (and you are not eligible for an upgrade through your carrier), you sell your current one and buy the new one for the retail price. Sites like eBay and Craigslist are good places to sell your phone.
