I'm thinking about buying a White Macbook Core Duo (1st generation model) with 60gb HD, 512mb, BT 2.0, AEX, etc with box, charger, and OSX cd's from a local seller. I have already seen this machine in person and it's perfectly mint. Now he's offering a price of around $850-$900 CDN (no tax). I'm wondering whether this is worth it? I just saw the new Macbooks released this morning and was wondering if it would drive down the value of the 1.83 Macbook? Is $850-$900 too high for this kind of Macbook?
That seems about right, price-wise. But bear something in mind, since it only has 512 megs of RAM (and that means it's likely loaded with 256MB x 2), a memory upgrade to 1GB will require that you either purchase a 1GB stick or go with 2 x 512. Also, this system runs incrementally faster with RAM in matching pairs.
If I see any deals in the next week or so, I will let you know. It's a quick drive from Ottawa to Laval, especially to save some serious coin. Too bad they don't have the deals this week, I will be in Ottawa on Sat-Sun. I could have brought you a Macbook and taken your MBP off your hands.
