I have a friend who's looking to sell a 2008 Macbook, and I was considering buying it from them, doing a few upgrades, and potentially re-selling it. I've done a bunch of desktop building, but I'm trying to get some experience tinkering with laptops. The stock specs are: Early 2008 Macbook (4,1) 13.3'' (1280x720) Core2Duo @2.1 GHz 1 GB (2x 512 MB) RAM 120GB 5400-rpm SATA HDD Working superdrive It's in nice physical condition as it's been well cared for, and had the keyboard/plastic-shell replacement under warranty. I was going to upgrade the RAM to 4 GB, and add a 240/250 GB SSD. I'm still deciding between an OWC (which doesn't require TRIM) and a Samsung or Crucial (which do). Mac2Sell gives a starting price of $280, and an upgrades price of $730. I was going to offer to buy it for ~300, and then try to sell it for $700. Does that sound reasonable?
