    Found a mac it was bought in feb last year, so its either a late 07 model or early 08. Its the white one.

    Has a brokem screen on it, shes asking 275$ for it.

    What do you guys think is it worth it or what?

    Screens are quite expensive ... IMO, you can get a better deal on a newer used one.

    If its white its a late 2006 at best. What is the screen size? What processor? HD? RAM?

    Model revision. Late 2006 model was the last white one and was last sold new in Aug 2007 when the Aluminum ones came in.

    What?

    According to MacTracker, there were white MB revisions up to Late 2008 - which is when the Unibody MB came out.

    This is ****** information, white ones were being sold in late 2008. Aluminum unibody ones didn't come until late 2008, the air was the first sign of apple's new design in early 2008. Screens cost close to nothing however I wouldn't buy it because in my experience when the LCD is broken and they want to sell it there's usually a ton of junk also wrong with it and it's not fun playing detective when for $100 more you could grab a working one.

    A thousand pardons, my head was in iMac-land at the time. White MacBooks are obviously still around.

    Not worth it IMO.

    You could get a non-broken one for a little bit more.
