    I found a 2.4ghz 15 inch, 250gb, 2gb ram, unibody macbook pro on ebay for £650.
    guy has relatively good feedback but says machines warranty has been voided, keyboard lights are slightly dim and dvd drive only plays original discs not copies.

    All discs and adapters included too.

    He responded to my question but I do have a sense that there may be more to it?

    What u guys think? Are superdrives hard to replace in unibodys? I am quite good with electronics but anything i should be aware of?

    To good or not to good, that's the question. :rolleyes:

    I think it's a bargain, really. But the question is if it's indeed too good a bargain or not. I wouldn't do it, but that's just me. I'd go with a refurbished or a solid, fully functional, used machine.

    It's 969£ from UK refurb store but your eBay one has no warranty and broken SuperDrive and is used too, so I think it's fair price for that.

    Well I suppose if it was an uber bargain it would have been snapped up by now! Also the fact it has been voided is strange. Ah well more bargain hunting on the horizon for me.

    Cheers guys
