Hey all,

Going to be purchasing a used 2007 black MacBook from Amazon. Currently I am looking at one with these specs, and would like your input on if this is a good deal, or not

Price: $500.00

Specs:
Apple MacBook - Core 2 Duo 2.16 GHz
RAM 1 GB (Upgraded to 4GB)
HDD 160 GB - DVD?RW (+R DL) (Upgraded to 500GB) - unsure what brand/type
GMA 950 - Gigabit Ethernet - WLAN : Bluetooth 2.0 EDR, 802.11 a/b/g/n (draft)
MB063B/B

The machine is running Lion (10.7.2), and included is Office Mac 2008.

Tried asking an opinion over @ Mac Rumors, and only got 1 response. Would be very appreciative if I could get some more input on this.

Thanks!

The price may be a bit too high. Mac2Sell lists the same machine for $450.

I know this is way over what I assume to be your budget.

Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.4GHz Dual-core Intel i5 - $1019
Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.4GHz Dual-core Intel i5 - Apple Store (U.S.)

To me in the long run this would be a better value, comes with one year warranty and eligible for AppleCare to extend to 3 years.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
QUOTE Thanks
