    Check this out:
    Apple MacBook for Parts/Repair SOLD AS IS - eBay (item 250307515620 end time Oct-21-08 22:03:56 PDT)

    Kid says the CD won't eject. Do I take his word for it and bid on it with the hope a new hard drive would make the CD eject?
    ..I really don't want to be w/o a macbook and if I can fix one up cheap, I'd be a happy boy .
    Yes my name is Jaguar.
    No, it is not a joke.
    I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

    Umm is the HDD connected to the CD ROM drive somehow? I don't see how they are related.

    Why would a new hard drive make the CD rom drive eject? I don't think that guys friend is very smart.

    Oh yeah that's right...The CD drive should still work regardless of the hard drive...That thing is probably really beaten up then huh haha

    I find this amusing:

    Either the CD/DVD drive is shot of just jammed. You can get a new drive and install it but those drives are $100+ everywhere I have looked. Also is the seller being truthful about the rest of the macbook?

    Edit: I just looked at his auction. That thing is BEAT UP All the plastic on the edge is missing, cracks in the plastic by the keyboard. Is that screen cracked or is that the desktop? I would stay away from that if I were you.

    I have looked online and I think that you can replace them for about 100$, Give or take $20. There are many,many tutorials online on how to access that dang disc drive, Many people simply upgrade or just have to replace them after a while. I did!

    Thanks Travis and I am...especially for the price...Over $400 now...Crazy....And I just sold this for $550. I wouldn't mind replacing a Hard Drive and CD Drive...if it sold for like $250..But man, that much? That thing is definitely just parts, plain parts hahaha...Some poor sap is gonna buy it and get royally screwed.
    I'm sureeeee he has a "Buddy who works on macs." If it was just the Hard Drive, wouldn't you replace it? It's only $80-ish..
    I bet the logic board is fried
