    Hey everyone!

    I currently have an old MacBook that I haven't really used since last year after I got my iMac. I also have a 2012 MacBook air, but I've seen people using MacBooks from 2006 with no problem, so I thought I'd give my MacBook a chance. I have the early 2008 base model. The thing is... It's pretty slow, the battery won't charge, and some of the keyboard keys won't work (I spilled orange juice and water on three different occasions)... I'm just wondering if it's worth fixing up, or should I just recycle it, or possibly even sell it for parts.

    Thank you for your time! :3

    Part it out on ebay...As long as you know how to safely detach and disassemble it shouldn't be a problem...Or just sell it outright and save yourself the time and effort but be up front about some of it's shortcomings...Peace
