    Look to buy a mid 2010 macbook and talked the guy down to $220. Just want to get your guys thought on if it still worth it? Seem like a great find to me...if all works like he says. Meeting with the seller tomorrow

    Sounds pretty cheap, even if it's totally stock! If it's in good condition it sounds like a winner. My Early '08 was $300 on eBay, though it's a Black model without chips. Bit of a hard find.

    Even my Late '08 I sold for $500 last December (2.4GHz/SSD).

    So for $220 without tax, pretty good.

    Add 16GB RAM and a 250/500GB SSD and'll you have a computer for the next 4 years. Its 320M GPU has practically the same performance as a HD3000 and in some tasks (e.g. computing stuff with CUDA vs. OpenCL in some apps) it outperforms HD 4000. There's a hacked nVidia driver in the Macbook Pro forum which enables CUDA in Mavericks + "old" GPUs like the 320M.

    If you don't need dealing with videos, big raw pictures or some specific statistical or academic application, you can live with "just" 8GB.
