It depends more on what revision/year it is. If you put the serial into the Apple website it will tell you which one it comes under. Have a look what the going prices are on other peoples auctions and what they are selling at.

If you find you cant be arsed with ebay and want a quick sale then mac2cash were very good when I dealt with them. Obviously you wont get as high a return as you potentially could from ebay but its a lot less hassle.

-edit-
The ebay links were not put in by me - goddamn ad bots
-edit2-
Hah that also explains why it linked to some random hard disk on amazon in the OP.

Yeah as I mentioned, you wont get the best possible price through places like mac2cash but they offer a quick alternative thats relatively hassle-free for those that dont want to deal with that-autcion-site-begining-with-an-e-take-that-you-bastard-advert-bots.

In my case the price they offered me for my old mini was comparable with the buy-now prices but obviously it varies.

Not sure what "selling fees" are, but suitable shipping for computer equipment isn't exactly cheap. The price mac2cash quote includes courier collection by default.

well ebay charges you a listing fee and a final value selling fee.
and then paypal take a chunk as well.

p&p shouldn't cost you anything via ebay though, as you list that as a separate cost, and using places like parcelmonkey or parcels2go, you can calculate and get a quote for courier before advertising the listing.
