    Is the Apple recycling program worth it?

    I know it would be hard to be 3 weeks without a computer. They quoted me a $320 gift card for my 15" MBP 1.83 GHz, including the new power adapter I just got for it. The computer works great. I'm thinking about using the gift card to buy a new MB, just not sure if this is the best way to get rid of my old one. Experiences from anyone who has used that program would be great! :apple:

    It has snow leopard. It's an Intel Core Duo, 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. All that is just from "about this Mac." It's in like new shape. I don't remember what year I bought it though...

    The only reason i'm asking is because I saw one close to your specs selling for 600-700 bucks. check them out on ebay. Did you already turn it in?

    Wow!! That's a huge difference. Thanks for Letting me know. I haven't turned it in yet because I wasn't sure about the program. I'll look at eBay as a possibility.

    I think that program is designed for broken Macs. Sell it on eBay, you'll get a better deal:D
