    Maybe possible, but probably not, as even the white MacBook from 2008 can still fetch 400 to 600 USD.
    Just browse Craigslist and eBay on a daily basis to maybe find such steal.

    Man, best of luck to you in your search. Heck, a lot of iBook G4's still go for around 300 dollars.

    Just to put things into perspective for the OP and his spending limit:

    Bought a 2008 black MB C2D, 4GB RAM, 2.4GHZ with 320GB HD for $550 last year.
    Bought a 2010 white MB C2D, 4GB RAM, 2.4GHZ with 250GB HD for $600 in December.

    Unless the seller is clueless, you won't find one for $250 that is worth owning. I've seen some white MBs on Craigslist lately in bad shape for more then what I paid for my 2010 MB.

    I just sold a Late 2009 Unibody White MacBook for $600 on craigslist. It had a 2.26GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB of RAM, 250GB HD and brand new top case installed by Apple with 2 months left in warranty. I have never seen a MacBook for less than $400, and that was a 2006 Core Duo model.
