This is an intel mac that i'm thinking of purchasing, however it has a large white line down the middle of the screen. What's wrong with it?

Maybe it's one of the "Tiger's" stripes. Walk away.

It looks like a screen fault of some type most likely - id stay away from it regardless.

It looks more like an image edit to me. Something about that white line doesn't look quite right with the rest of the photo.
Even if it is a legit issue, stay away from it.

Yeah that white line definitely looks like it was added. Not a good idea to trust the seller.

Looks like its badly shopped and off ebay mate, stay well away.
Even if it is legit i wouldn't bother with it, not like you can change the screen on it, i doubt its an easy fix or economical to do it.

Just get a refurb. You'll buy it without worrying about such stuff and plus you'll get a warranty.
