  • Advice: Where to sell computers in Tokyo?

    Hello all. I'm trying to sell a Macbook Pro 13" in Tokyo. I'm trying out Craigslist, but the response is way slower when compared to states. Are there any places here in Tokyo, preferably around Shibuya, where I can sell my Macbook Pro for a good price?

    Thanks in advance

      There is a place in Akihabara with heaps of used laptops.
      Actually, there are heaps of places in Akihabara with heaps of used laptops.

      Just head down the main drag and ask around.

      I would guess you'll get about 20,000 yen tops.

          Let's have a bidding war!
          I will give you 2300 yens, a five-pack of beer (well, beer like beverage) and throw in a beef-bowl lunch.
          If you are an attractive young female I will let you touch my hair also.

              haha, thanks for the replies. I don't think anywhere below 60,000 will be even worth my computer. Here are what I'm offering for 75,000 yen. I think it's decent enough.

                Reasonable price - they're going from 60k through to 100k on Yahoo Auctions at the moment, mostly with 4GB RAM only. The model that's more than 100k has a 1TB HDD and a lot of extras.

                  As TripHop indicated, yahoo auctions might be the best place to sell your laptop. However, you'd need to be relatively fluent in Japanese and have an account. Best to have a Japanese friend who uses Yahoo auctions...

                    No worries about Japanese. I'm trilingual.
                    As for Yahoo auction, don't you have to have a credit card? I wan't to sell this computer in person. For example, recently, I brought some of the NDS games and DVDs to Book-off, and they bought it from me for 10k. Something like that.

                      Buy them..
                      If you don't mind EXPERIMENTING with COMPUTERS (and your Japanese / how to build and PC:s) in Tokyo, go to Akihabara!

                      Or buy one from pctokyo.com (simpler) or have one shipped to you from your home country (check the insurance tho)!

                      Cheers!

                        That was 10 years ago...PC parts are now best bought online at shops like tsukumo, sofmap or PC Depot after comparing prices at kakaku. Most producers of motherboards, video cards, etc. are Taiwanese anyway, so there is usually an English manual or get it online.
                        PC Tokyo are frigging expensive, much cheaper to buy a standard PC without Operating system and install English Windows and Keyboard.
                        ... but Shops in Akihabara sometimes have good offeres on used staff, also sofmap has used computers and parts online.
