    Macbook Pro 2.16Ghz Intel core 2 duo. Has 2 GB of RAM. With 120GB HD.

    The MBP was dropped and apparently only the screen is broken and the guy is selling for $400.

    He said he can test it with external screen.

    Good buy? If not, what's the reasonable price? Thinking of getting this as desktop...... What should I be aware of for a dropped MBP? What other common defective is known for dropped laptop?

    Yes to answer the OP's original question. Yes I think $400 would be a good price for a C2D MBP. If that's all that's wrong with it. The screens are only a few hundred. That MBP goes for over twice as much if it were fully functional.

    Why not go a lower offering price? The worst the seller can say is no. I'd buy it for $400 and fix the screen but that is just me.
