    It's a MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2008), MB134LL/A. I use MacTracker for this type of information, btw.

    Are these the dreaded NVIDIA models that were dying? I've been looking into buying used but the history of these models have been putting me off... Anyway all the best with the machine and hope you don't have any bother. I'm still sticking with my trusty old 15" 1.25GHz G4 for now and looking to take the plunge soon! I don't even have two fingered scrolling!

    Yes, and if the original purchase date is more than 4 years ago, Apple is no longer replacing the logic boards for free if it goes out. I wouldn't recommend one of these. Going older to the first generation MBP would be preferable over an Early 2008 or 2.2/2.4GHz model (that's Apple's model names, it's the MacBookPro 3,1 and MacbookPro 4,1 models).

    I have this model, and while I have not experienced any problems in almost 4 years I still wouldn't have risked it. Curious to know what the OP paid for it, though.

    This brings back all those hundreds of threads about "ZOMG, should I run Crisis nonstop at ludicrous frames/sec to overstress the card and make it fail sooner so I can get the free replacement...???". Good times :D

    A used 4 year old company computer? $800 is a bit high. However I don't know the market in the Middle East, so I cannot comment on it. Maybe your local market is like Ebay in the US; full of misinformed people who are willing to pay higher than market value.
