Question Help pricing mbp with damaged lcd & superdrive?

Hi all,
I'm looking to sell my mbp, which isn't in the greatest shape, and have no idea how to price it (probably selling on my local craigslist). Hoping y'all can help
Here are the specs..

THE GOOD
(model identifier macbookpro1,1)
Macbook Pro Core Duo 2.0 GHz
2 GB Ram 667 (max)
ATI Radeon X1600 128mb vram
new battery (15 cycles, 5352 capacity)
new 85w ac adapter (the new smaller, square ones)
logic board replaced 2 years ago
works like a charm, runs cs4, games, etc. quite nicely

THE BAD
Superdrive not working (sometimes reads, tries to write but usually fails - could just be dust?)
LCD badly damaged - 3 black blotches around the edges, and some lines crisscrossing it
minor scratches on case - quite a few on right corner (beside superdrive slot)

any thoughts? I saw the same model with a fried logic board on craigslist going for 600 recently - don't know if s/he sold it for that or not, though.
Thanks

i recently sold a 2.16 Macbookpro 2,1. Ask for 1200, sold for 1000. It was in 8/10 shape. good superdrive and LCD. tough times, what can you say.

Hmmm I would break it up and sell the parts. Or track down a used screen and replace it.

For the Superdrive try cleaning the lens with a cleaner CD as it probably is coated in dust causing your intermittent issues.

that busted LCD is really gonna bring the price down

i probably wouldn't pay more than 500 for something like that. if you could fix the LCD, maybe 800
