    Like the title says I bought a macbook 2.4 c2d with the x3100 integrated video card for $282. I believe this is either the early 2008 or late 2008 model. Is this a good price for this computer?

    Thanks but I wasn't really sure if I made a good choice. I'm still having my doubts right now but I guess we'll find out the condition when it arrives next week.

    Good price (for a working C2D) especially since there are some who are trying to get that much for their iBook G4 computers.

    btw, I check and it is most likely the early 2008 as the late 2008 model came with a 2.1GHz processor.

    awesome! I'm really excited to get my first mac! Is there any sticky or recommendations in this forum as to what to check for when I get the macbook besides the obvious such as does it turn on, sound, cracks, bulding battery, and bad hard drive?
