    I thought it was one heck of a deal so I bought it from a local seller. It only has 512MB ram, but it does come with a built-in iSight, Superdrive, Bluetooth. Airport, etc. What sold me is that it still had Applecare until March of next year and the seller included a full retail DVD install of Leopard, which alone is $129.

    I am struck dumb at the magnitude of that deal. Congratulations!

    Incidentally, I was wondering if I could get a general consensus on this...

    When do you think that the Core Duo MacBook Pros on eBay will start having their auctions end at around $650?

    The seller original had it listed as a Core 2 Duo for $650. When I paid him a visit, I took a quick look at "About This Mac" and sure enough is was an older Core Duo machine. That's when the bargaining started.

    By the way, I think you can upgrade to a Core 2 Duo if you really wanted to...
