    I was just wondering if there is any trade-in discount that I could use towards a new Apple Laptop, if I trade in my old white 13 inch macbook intel core duo.

    I was just wondering since I really want to use Lion, but the only way I can is if I get a new laptop, but I do not have the money for one right now.

    I really disspointed that my macbook can not run Lion:(

    I don't know of any trade in discounts through apple. I thought I remember best buy having one. You could check out this thread where someone got lion to run on a core duo/solo

    Apple's not the greatest at supporting older hardware, they seem to practice planned obsolescence. A 4 or 5 year old laptop that doesn't run Lion is completely unacceptable. My two cents.

    There's a recycling program, but you won't get fair market value for your computer. I just got a quote for my 2007 Macbook and found that I'd get less than $100 for it.

    I'm guessing you'd be better off selling it through craigslist or ebay, but I don't know how I'd determine an appropriate asking price. I've got a damaged but usable screen, so I probably wouldn't get much regardless.
