For storage purposes, you gotta weight the money you are planing to put into upgrading this thing and whether that's better spent on a, either USB-based or WIFI-based, external HD.
An USB-HD can also be plugged in into an Airport Base Station, no screamer but good enough for photos, and be available to everybody.
maybe she's storing a bunch of pictures that she doesn't want everyone else looking at.
Sharing is caring
In my opinion, it's not worth throwing money at it. Buy a NAS or even just a USB thumb drive if all she needs is storage for pictures. A 128GB USB drive is $40 these days.
For the money you would put into fixing it up, you could buy a newer used Macbook that already has more storage and memory, plus newer processor.
It can take 2gb ram. Two 1gb sticks should be a fairly cheap and easy find on eBay. Find a cheap hdd and throw that in it, and run a fresh install of snow leopard. It definitely won't be a powerhouse, but should be acceptable for photos and a little surfing.
I wouldn't upgrade to an SSD or find a new battery. Simple not worth the money.
Use it as chocks for your car when you park on a hill.
Sell it to me for $35
I have a white 2008 as well. I was just going to wipe it clean and throw it up on the "Bay." Looks like some of the bids are already at $175 and up
I would likely put that device in the kitchen and use it for cooking recipes and shopping lists. Or maybe put it in the living room as an email station. The point is that device could see new life as a purpose-dedicated machine.
