I'm not in a rush or anything, but i do want to get a macbook or pro soon...(first time macbook owner). i know that a refresh is coming out soon for the mb, but the specs really don't concern me that much unless there's a new design. I'm a college student that's mostly going to use my mp for writing essays, watching youtubes, and maybe stream movies to tv, heck i don't even play games or watch high definition movies. I found this on ebay this morning "Used MacBook 13.3 Notebook/Laptop Computer OSX 10.6" Starting bid: US $325.00 Final price US $425.00 Spec: Model # A1181 Early 2008 Serial # W8825YVC0P1 OS: OSX 10.6 Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.4GHz 2GB Ram---160GB Hard Drive Software: iLife '09 and iWorks '09 (Software discs not included) Drive: DVDRW 2 USB Ports 1 Firewire port @ 400 MB/ sec Video Chipset: GMA X3100 Video Resolution: 1280 X 800 VRAM: 144MB AirPort Extreme, BlueTooth, Built in Camera Battery Does NOT hold a charge!!! The specs on this mp is compatible with apple's current mb specs and it's more than what i need. The only problem is that the battery is not working. So i did some research and it turns out that the battery only cost $64.95 http://www.usbphoneworld.com/apple-ma561g-a.html?CAWELAID=582796119 I figured that people wouldn't want a dead battery laptop anyway and maybe i can win the bid with <350.00 and buy the battery for $65 which will get a mb for under 450 maybe. so.. do you think that this would be a good deal?
