    I'm just wondering, I want to sell my beloved WhiteBook, do Apple buy them back?
    Does anyone know how much I would get for it? (Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GHz, 1GB RAM and 120GB HD)

    Apple does not buy them back, you can recycle it.

    Sorry, apple doesn't do that.

    Although some retailers do, get the Mac|Life Magazine and see the ads for Mac computers and find out who sells them. I know some of them buy them.

    You will be heartbroken when you find out how much you can realistically get for it; although, in my experience Macbooks and especially Macbook pros keep their value much better than PCs. I'd recommend giving it to a local school (or teacher, God knows most of them need a little help), your kid, significant other, etc..

    Hey, there's an idea for an Apple response to "Laptop Hunters" - show prices of used Macbook Pro's on Ebay next to prices of a brand new POS Best Buy Windoze laptop. LOL. Now they're doing their own stores next to Apple stores... can you imagine navigating a Microsoft designed store? Bad feng shui all over the place...

    You're looking in the $600 range. Maybe $700 if you find the right person.

    Apple does not buy back. Try eBay, craigslist, or maybe someone on the forum will take it off your hand.
