Ah, I didn't know it was a Core Duo. The seller told me it was a Core 2 Duo. I am definitely not going to buy it then.

thanks.

Also, I thought this model had a 100gb HD or an 80gb HD.. (unless he put his own in)

I wouldn't totally be afraid of the Core Duo model MacBook Pro. It's true that many people reported problems with them, but, in my case, my MacBook Pro has been PERFECT since day 1. No issues where I've needed to go back to the Apple store at all..
