I've found a used MBP (Late 2006, MA609LL) for sale, but can't really decide if it's a good buy. The owner bought it in August 2007, which is right after the new model arrive, but it's still the "old model" with 128MB X1600 and LCD-screen. He wants $1013 for it. I live in Denmark, and the prices are a bit higher than in the US. Here are some for comparison. They are all new from the Apple store, and configured the same way as in the US. It's only the price (and the keyboard layout) that's different. Macbook White 2.1 $1233 Macbook Alu 2.0 $1570 Macbook Pro 2.4 $2364 My other options are buying a new Macbook Alu 2.0, or a Macbook White 2.1. Money is an issue, and the higher resolution would be very nice. It's just a question if the older MBP is a trustworthy and good machine.
