I got a hold of a 2007 Macbook Pro (3,1) which I have no use for so was going to sell it, but I have an Uncle that really likes the looks of it and would like to buy it instead. I don't see any use for him having it though. I set up his kids with a Dell XPS M1530 which is also from 2007 with about the same specs, he has a Dell Latitude from 2011. I don't even think he knows why he wants it other than because it looks like a Mac lol, but I just wanted to ask how many modern programs will work and stuff on it, how useful can it still be?

I have that model MBP. Stuck a 500GB SSD in it and it handles Yosemite and anything else I give it fairly well.
