13" MacBook Aluminum Unibody 2008 - SOLD

My wife upgraded to a new laptop so I have no need for another so it is up for sale.

This is the late 2008 Apple MacBook Aluminum Unibody laptop in almost mint condition. It spent 90% of it's time sitting on her lap in the living room so there is no real wear and tear except for some minor scuffs and one small indentation on the cover (it does not take away from the condition - just full disclosure). The MacBook has been upgraded with an SSD drive and besides keeping the battery use to a minimal it makes the MacBook smoking fast doing everything ... from boot time to program loading.

Although the 60GB SSD is smaller I found it was plenty of space for her needs (It was purchased at a premium when SSD’s were way more expensive to buy), it can be easily swapped out for a larger SSD drive or 7200PRM HDD or other at buyer’s expense.

The specifications are as follows:

• Apple MacBook Aluminum Unibody Model
• 13.3” LED Display with no dead or stuck pixels.
•*Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.0GHz
• 4GB RAM
• 60GB Solid State Hard Drive (SSD)
• Superdrive
• standard Bluetooth, Ethernet, Wireless, SD slot and USB ports - all ports work no dead ports
• Battery is at 85% of life (744 cycles) and still keeps the laptop running for a good couple of hours on a charge
• BRAND NEW Apple charger
• Original Box, manuals and installation DVD

Full details can be seen here: MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 13" (Unibody) Specs (Late 2008 Aluminum, MB466LL/A, MacBook5,1, A1278, 2254) @ EveryMac.com

The MacBook will come fully formatted with OSX 10.9.x Mavericks, Pages, Numbers and Keynote. Pictures available on request.

I am asking $400 Pick up in Orillia or meet at a convenient midway point. I can offer shipping to ehMac members in good standing at their expense.

- sold -

A very solid laptop - mine is still going strong, relegated to my wife's use, where it dual boots with Windows 7 Ultimate for certain specialized software needs. Damn near bulletproof - and like you, we had to replace the Magsafe adapter (ours disintegrated at the head of the cable). I don't know the seller or this laptop in particular, but that model was / is fabulous. I can only imagine what it's like with an SSD Good luck with the sale!

Thanks CubaMark for the glowing review of the MacBook. I would love to keep it but it sat on my desk for 3 months after she upgraded and I just never could find a use for it. I guess it comes to a point where you can have too many toys, but I'll buy more anyways.
