    My school is selling a:

    2.13 GHz Core 2 Duo
    160GB SuperDrive
    2GB Memory
    Double-layer SuperDrive

    Plus a HP Deskjet F4480 Printer!

    I understand it is an older version, but I feel like it's a great deal.

    Is it? Should I get it?!

    I'm assuming this is new old stock, that Apple is pushing through the school (it's the immediate previous generation - Mid '09 by the sound of it)

    Does it have the full 12 month limited warranty? Can you still get AppleCare on it?

    If so, then it's a good enough deal. You have the advantage of a FireWire port and Mini DVI rather than mini display port (the adaptors are cheaper).

    ...that's the prev gen right before the new unibody whitebook... it still has FW400, just a slightly slower CPU, the same GPU (9400m) a removable battery, etc... that's what they are selling for on the apple refurb site and they sell out quickly when they show up...

    Its a good deal for a whitebook and its not old...(see my sig, I did the same on the 2.0Ghz whitebook when the 2.13's came out)...
