I have an Early 2008 Macbook Pro which has been dropped a couple of times - Besides the presumed denting, the screen has light grey streaks throughout. I'd like to sell it - either to one of these companies like ifixit, or, if I'll make more, would like to part it out. Have you had experience with this before? Which way will I make more money? Thanks!

You'll probably make more by parting it out on eBay or Craig's list. Of course that depends on how useable the parts are.

Which parts in particular do you recommend selling? How would you break the computer down?

The two which will be in most demand are the logic board and display.
