I would say 3 years is "getting up there", especially for a portable with a battery issue. Overall no, Macs do tend to last for years, decades even, but batteries don't. If the battery wasn't...

Perhaps you're right, I'll move the router back to it's original spot tomorrow and see if performance improves. If so, I'll go with the long ethernet cable solution.

Never bought a new Mac before, so Craigslist would be my "favorite" place.

But if I was in the market for a new Mac, I'd buy directly from Apple, wouldn't want to deal with a 3rd party retailer.

Never even bothered to check if my Late '07 MacBook was compatible with Mountain Lion. Turns out that it isn't, and thus Mavericks is a no-go as well.


Oh well, Snow Leopard is doing just fine.
