I have the Black Macbook, the first model ever made, and by that I mean the first blackbooks that they made. I want to make sure that It will be around for a long time, because, well, its clearly worth more now, or is going to be when the Black Macbooks get even rarer because they are in homes, and people are breaking them. I am going to upgrade my BlackBook to a MacBook Pro this summer, but I want to keep the BlackBook, so that I can always have it, because I like how it looks, and how people look at it in the coffee shops and library Anyways, so as you might know, the BlackBooks have been known to crack a lot. On mine, on the right corner on the bottom half of the laptop (not the lid, but the part where the keyboard is), the paint has came off. It's still black in that area, but you can tell that a part of the laptop peeled off, like a layer of the paint, where that spot is. It's in a line about 2 inches long, but it's still black.. The CD drive is also broken, and the screen is flickering sometimes.. Bottom Line is, how can I make it so that it won't keep falling apart. I am also going to try to replace the screen and the superdrive replaced. And if it meets OSX Lion specs, I will upgrade it to that.. So, what are some tips?
