    Hi, I bought a macbook air off of craigs list for $450. The computer is barely used although its 31 months old but only 5 loadcycles (literally just sitting around). I bought it because i had a netbook in mind but i figured for 450 this would bea and netbook.

    So my question is do you think 450 was a good price for this laptop, because i see lots of talk about heat issues and the hinges so i am a little worried.

    That is a good deal. Mac2sell.com list it's resale value at $560. You will be happy with your purchase if all you are using for is light computing.

    Its an incredibly good deal, I would have done the same in a heartbeat.

    For the same price its so much better than a net book. Heck, I would rather use my iphone than a net book.

    $450 is a great price for the laptop. You could probably sell it and make a decent profit from it if you wanted to.

    Great deal! A fully fledged, hardly used computer for almost the price of an entry level iPad :D

    Does it have any Applecare left on it?
