    well, i gota macbook goin from a macbook pro..
    alright, yesterday i got a new computer, a macbook in white. its prety loaded, 2.16 ghz , 2 gigs of ram and a 120 gig hd. i am steping down ( not really upgrading) from a macbook pro, wich is a year old. i love the computer, but i completly cracked the screen, cant see a thing, and its got alot of other problems, like blown speaker, latch wont stay closed ETC. it had a 80 gig hd, but thats all i remember, i think it had 1 gig of ram but not shure. after usin it for a few hours, i like it alot. its smaller and lighter, and doesnt get as hot as my pro. i was worried about how bad the glossy screen would be ( . i chose matte on my pro) but the glare isnt bad. although i havent used it outside yet. the computer is alot faster then my pro tho, i love it . it was sweet because my dad is going to school, so i got free nano ( got it in red, its a 4gig) and printer. this wil add to my familly collection of apple products- imacg4, 2 ibooks, macbook pro, black macbook, my new white macbook, ipod 2nd gen, ipod photo, ipod nano 1st gen black, nano 1st gen whit, silver 2nd gen nano, black video 30gig, and my new ipod nano red.

    I wouldn't recommend pulling things from the MBP apart and selling them separately. Try fixing the speakers first and list it on eBay. The thing should sell for no less than $1,200 if the condition is "good".

    Otherwise, you could keep the MBP as your back-up laptop or make it a gift for your dad?

    my dad already has a macbook black. the mbp isnt even usable. it would cost 1.2 grand just to fix it, so its not worth it

    There is a very good market for damaged Macs on eBay. An enterprising individual could probably repair that machine for a fraction of the estimates you've seen. If I didn't have the skill to repair it myself, I would probably just put it up on eBay as-is, listing the faults and see what you get. I'm guessing it would fetch about $500.

    If you'd like to try your hand at repairing it yourself, check out http://www.ifixit.com

    if you just kept it you would get no money for it, so you may as well just put it on ebay and take whatever you get for it. its better than nothing and just having it lay around!
