    512 RAM, (256 top and bottom), 15", 1Ghz processor, 40 gig hard-drive, airport card, superdrive (burns and reads CD's and DVD's), purchased in March of 2003 (I'm not totally sure about the March part, but it was early in the year) I purchased apple care 3-year warranty, so there is about 6 months left.

    Sometimes that hinge problem makes the screen go purple for a second (this is from dropping it.) It used to do it a lot more, but now it rarely ever does it. I just move the screen a little bit and it stops.

    Plus, I need to buy a new battery for the laptop.

    How much do you think I should offer? :)
