After 5 years, I've finally let go of my late 08 MacBook. That machine is just unstoppable, but I had an opportunity to swap it for a newer 15" MBP without losing any money. I had to step down from the 8gb ram and 120gb SSD I had in mine, but I can always upgrade my new MBP, and frankly, with the small SSD it was a bit of a burden to keep enough space free. Out of every computer/tech purchase I've ever made, the old MacBook is the best. I got my money out if it, and then some. I can't imagine buying a PC laptop and having it last 5 years.
