Here's a quote from the Craig's List ad you linked:
I specialize in MacBooks and G4 iBooks. I've got all the parts and expertise to sell you what you need and fix your machine when it goes down.
This unit has a battery, however it does not work off the power supply even with a good battery."
This MacBook obviously has power related issues. It is not really clear if this computer works or not. The seller seems to indicate that the MacBook does not work with a good or bad battery...and it also seems to indicate that it doesn't work while plugged in via the power supply.
Also...why do you think this seller gives so much unnecessary info about how they have "all the parts and expertise to sell you what you need and fix your machine when it goes down."
That's because this seller wants you to buy this most likely "non-working" computer...then turn around & try to get you to let him fix it for an additional charge!!!
So your total cost for this computer will be the $399 purchase price + whatever it costs to repair it.
Lastly...the seller doesn't even include the processor speed of this laptop. Most likely it is a 1.83 or 2.0ghz dual core model...but knowing the processor speed is a BIG DEAL in determining it's current value.
