    There many people using an old Macbook Pro but what is your definition of "old"? I have an early 2011 which would be considered old by today's standards.

    In that case, I would not be one of these users but I'm sure there are many people using the 2008 although they may not be MacRumors forum members.

    I actually am. I recently bought a used 17" of 2009 macbook Pro, eveyrthing is running great, in the process of wanting to upgrade from HDD to SSD. bought a caddy, but deciding if i want to pay extra $117 for 1TB or just pay 169$ at best buy for a 500$ for now and see how it does and if it enough. I'm keeping the 1TB HDD in my system but using SSD as a secondary drive. LOL

    Typing this on a mid 2009 15" MacBook Pro bought more than 8 years ago and used pretty much every day ever since. The screen starts to go bad, the DVD drive never worked correctly (not that I needed it the past five or so years) and the SD card reader does not support SDXC, rendering that port useless, but it's still working. The keyboard and trackpad are still great, so yes, those machines are still great web surfing and typing notebooks.

    I have a 2008 MBPro, but don't use it so much now. The battery does not last more than a few minutes, and I can't justify spending to replace that --- a portable that you can't use on battery is not so useful :)
    But, what is your real question about 2008 models?

    I have a 2006 17inch core duo, a 2007 15inch core 2 duo and an early 2011 13 inch model. The backlight on the keyboard on the 2006 120GB SSD 2GB Ram is not working well but it runs Snow Leopard without a hitch. The 2007 120GB SSD 4GB Ram works great but temps on the cpu go high according to the temp monitor up to 90C. My 2011 I purchased new with 500GB SSD 16GB ram battery is starting to show that is needs to be serviced. Was planning on upgrading but cannot justify it with other purchases and the fact all my machines cover my needs.
