    Im curious on how much I should expect out of my MacBook.

    2.0Ghz Core2Duo
    2GB of RAM
    80GB HDD

    with all original packing...

    im checking ebay, but im getting items there for like $400 (granted there is 2 days left)

    I want at LEAST $900 out of it, am I being unreasonable?

    When you do eBay checks, select the completed listings box. It'll make you log in and then show you finished auctions instead of in-progress ones. That way, you can see closing prices of successful auctions (in green) and unsuccessful ones (in red).

    Does it have a Leopard license, or Tiger? And did that one ship with iLife 08?

    I'd guess that if it has Leopard and iLife 08, that might be a reasonable forum sale price, inclusive of shipping, or maybe a local / Craigslist price. If it has older software, I'd guess slightly lower. Depends on how long you're willing to wait....

    I'd guess you can get that on eBay, although recently many members have been complaining about trying to sell Apple notebooks on eBay and getting too many bids from scammers....

    the restore disks have Tiger and iLife '06.

    However I will include leopard and iLife '08 preinstalled.
