I have an opportunity to buy a barely used Surface Pro 2 (256GB) with keyboard.

 

I would like to make a genuine and fair offer, but neither myself or the seller has any idea what it might be worth today.

 

When I google SP2's here in NZ all I seem to get are chargers. 

 

If you were selling one what would you accept?

I'd say about $250 max personally.

 

People list them on trademe for $450+ but they never seem to sell, I think they are dreaming.

 

Surface Pro 3s are a better proposition as they can use SP4 accessories.

I watchlisted several 4gb/128gb surface pro 2 in November. Some second hand dealer has a bunch for some reason. They are listed at approx $435 and several have sold at that price. I've occasionally seen the higher spec models 512gb/8gb come up they are relatively rare. They tend to be listed at $500 these days and get snapped up quickly. I have one and was wanting a second one for a while and had a watch for some time. Too much for me. Small market but they seem to go at that price. Later model has same proc as sp3.

Edit: they have one usb port only, no ethernet port. For desktop use will require a dock of some kind. Sp2 dock is nice. Hard to find now. Any dock will do. TradeMe is such a pain it's easily worth 20% not to use it..

Yes, it is the 8GB model with i5-4300U CPU.

 

So if we negotiate a price somewhere between $400-500 then we should both be able to sleep at night.

Those $430 ones didn't sell so yeah maybe on the low side of that easily.

eBay lists plenty of them at a range of prices.
