    I saw trashed MacBook Pro for 35 buck I can see they are heavy damaged and some dents on the body. I believe it is 2006 model I might be wrong anyway is it worth to buy it and repair everything? I am still using Powerbook G4 right now.

    What do you think?

    Just depends on what all is damaged and the cost of repairing everything. Do your own cost analysis and decide if it's worth it to you or not. Personally, I am not interested in buying fixer upers.

    What needs repairing? You could easily just find out what works, what needs to be replaced, and then find out how much it all is.

    But no. That isn't worth doing.

    Well, buying a beat up 2006 MBP is cheap.

    A more recent macbook would be more powerful.

    Do you know how stupid it is to buy a laptop based on price?

    ^Somebody is on to something. Having something that once had value doesn't really mean anything (in terms of false value) if it's worth nothing now.

    You're lying to yourself if you think it's "worth" something. I would advise you not do the CL thing either; if you don't have a grand, get something that's new, good, and something you can afford that will work for you.

    Compromising in performance, lifespan, and experience for a brand is just stupid.

    You can buy it and use it as a centre piece, or use it for parts.

    Somehow, you're making buying Macs a wrong decision so you might as well just buy a new PC.
