This is not really a question, but rather some impressions I've got the past few days. I bought an used late-2008 13-inch Macbook some days ago at a bargain. The whole Macbook is in MINT condition - only a scratch on the lid and a missing rubber foot. When I bought it, it had 2GB of RAM and the standard 5400RPM hard drive - actually it felt really snappy on Leopard when I got it. But after putting in 4GB RAM and an Intel 320 40GB SSD and installing Snow Leopard, this (old) machine is SCREAMING fast (actually faster than my mid-2011 iMac when doing browsing etc). And the boot time? 20 seconds from turned off to the desktop is ready! That's impressive! 40GB sounds like little space, but this fresh install of SL, and removing unnecessary language files, only 6.53GB of space is used! I'm only using this for some school work, so only browsing and using Office:Mac. So I have plenty of space Nevertheless, I'm really impressed of the build quality of Apple's products. Even this (soon) 4 year old product kicks ass compared to even brand-new PC's. Not only the build quality is fantastic, but also the design is timeless - I don't believe many 4 year old PC-laptops have the same "modern" feel. This Macbook is only temporary for me, as I'll buy the rMBP next year when it's updated - but I've really come to love this old Macbook. It reminds me why I love .
