update: i just learned that the macbook pro is still under warranty (as expected since it's an early 2008 model) for several more months per the seller and confirmed from the apple.com warranty status website. my question is, if i buy the macbook pro and it needs to be fixed due to whatever issue, can i take it to an apple retail store to get it repair with just a serial #? i would not have in my possession any proof of purchase... I found a seller for a Macbook pro but I have difficulty determining what year or model the macbook pro is. This is what he told me: Model Name: MacBook Pro Model Identifier: MacBookPro4,1 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 3 MB Memory: 2 GB Bus Speed: 800 MHz Boot ROM Version: MBP41.00C1.B03 SMC Version: 1.27f1 Serial Number: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sudden Motion Sensor: State: Enabled what is a fair price for this macbook pro if u guys are able to determine model version? thanks!
