I want to eBay my partner's Macbook. We live in the Netherlands, and it doesn't have a power cord due to acts of cat. How do we get the best price?

We have a four year old Macbook we want to sell, and I'm thinking of selling it on ebay.co.uk. I'm sure we could use marktplaats.nl, but my Dutch sucks and I'm nervous about Dutch taxes and so on. So question 1: is it wise to sell in England when we're in the Netherlands?
The computer also doesn't come with a power cord, as the original cord was chewed on by a friend's kitten (!!) and doesn't work. I obviously want to get the best price I can. So question 2: assuming that we sell in England, would it be wise to eBay a cord from England before listing the Macbook so I could sell it together?
The computer's in otherwise great condition and has a new battery. If anyone has any other advice on eBaying laptops I'd love to hear it!
