    It is a 1.6GHz 80GB ssd 2gb ram....NO box or manuals, warranty till Aug '09...he is asking 800 I said 700 he said nope. Yes, I know it's a REV A

    I see I can buy these on apple.com/refurb for $999, so what is a good price?

    $700.
    Rev A has KNOWN heat issues and while not all affected, many many were.
    The line has since seen 2 other revisions. The guy standing strong on going no more than $200 under refurb is silly. Ask him if it's ever been repaired and the fact that there's no box or anything I would not offer over $700.

    If it has an 80 GB SSD. Rev B came with a 128 GB SSD (optional).

    That's the dead giveaway. Also the Rev B with SSD has a 1.86 (?) processor.

    There has never been an 80GB SSD on the MBA. It's either a 64GB SSD or 80GB HDD.

    Oops sorry my bad. I meant to say HDD.
    But yes, that is correct and I stand by what I say $700 and not a penny more.

    $700 is a fair price, I sold mine 1st Gen MBA for $650 and that had a pretty good ding in the corner where I had dropped it accidently.

    ...I know people aren't crazy about netbooks due to the "power" of them but when I look at people who have MBA's (especially rev A units) and I pull out my $300 eeePC and don't have to plug in a USB hub, etc... to be productive with it on the go I just sort of laugh...

    The 13" uMB/MBP's with the current pricing and "real" GPU = that would have made me re-think getting a netbook over a year ago...
