    I am debating whether I should buy this macbook pro 17"

    MacBook Pro Laptop in prisitine condition, no scratches, original box, paperwork and restore discs.

    2.16ghz Core 2 Duo Processor
    2GB PC5300 Memory Ram
    120GB Hard Drive
    CD/DVD Burner
    Dedicated X1600 256mb Graphics Card
    Bluetooth
    Wireless ABG
    WebCam
    Mac OS X 10.4.10 (Latest)


    He wants $1600 for it. Is that a good deal?

    It's fair I'd say. It isn't a Core 2 Duo though, the 17" was never a 2.16 C2D. I'd recommend it, it's worth it I believe.

    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..
