    I Am Looking into selling these, although I'm not 100% sure how much to take for them, I'd like some reasonable prices as I Put some money into both of these.

    MBP:
    Early 2008
    15.4 Antiglare Display
    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4ghz
    6gb Ram (MAXED)
    120gb SSD (OCZ Vertex Plus SATA 2) (UPGRADED from stock)
    10.7.2

    MB:
    Mid 2007
    13.3 Glossy Display
    Intel Core 2 Duo 2ghz
    3gb Ram (MAXED)
    250gb 7200rpm HDD (UPGRADED from stock)
    10.7.2

    MBP has some dents and bends by the dvi port, and the magsafe port, along with a dent on the front left corner, and the macbook is in perfect condition other than the aged look on the apple logo. Both have new batteries and the new L shaped magsafe. I Hated the T Shaped one.

    I'm not 100% sure on selling it yet, I'm just looking around on how much I Could get out of it if i were to sell it.

    ----------

    Thanks for the input, I Paid $500 + $200 in upgrades on the MBP, and $250 + $150 on upgrades on the White MacBook.

    Just sold mine for $800

    My MBP was the same exact model, but had a new logic board, a 750 GB Scorpio Black, and 6 GB RAM also. My case was in better shape - only light scratching on the cover plus one "fingertip" impression it picked up in my computer bag. Had the original box, packaging, and all accessories to go with it.

    I think the buyer got a great computer for the price - recent upgrades and repairs alone cost me around $500 -- and the local listings (Dallas) on Craigslist seem to support this.

    Try the BestBuy trade in program. I haven't tried it yet, but the online estimator seems generous for early Core2 machines.
