Intel Core Duo
|Hard Drive Capacity:||
Used MacBook purchased new by me in June 2006. Just bought a new MacBook Pro so I want to unload this one.
This is one of the first Intel MacBooks that came out and had the Core Duo processor. NOT Core 2 Duo. Upgraded to 250gb 5400rpm Seagate HD and 2gb of RAM.
- SuperDrive DOES NOT WORK. It will sometimes read CDs but it is intermittent and will not usually read DVDs or burn anything. Needs to be replaced so OS can be installed.
- AirPort DOES NOT WORK. It is also intermittent. Sometimes it's ok, sometimes it isn't. Needs to be replaced.
- FAN RUNS FULL SPEED 100% OF THE TIME
- NO OS INSTALLED
I took the hard drive out and formatted it to remove my personal stuff, but I cannot reinstall the OS because the CD drive is no good, so I am selling it with NO OPERATING SYSTEM INSTALLED.
Nothing comes with this machine other than the power adapter, which is non-OEM. Original adapter fried itself
A couple years ago. Have had no issues with the aftermarket adapter. The battery still holds a charge for 2.5 hours. This is the second battery I've had in this computer and it is only about 4 years old.
Cosmetically, this computer is in pretty good shape. The only issue is at the top of the monitor. I took a picture of the cracked spot. The whole top case (keyboard, trackpad) was replaced two years ago.
This computer served me well for the last 6 years and could go for many more if the issues with the SuperDrive, Airport and fan are remedied. I almost want to keep this just as an artifact since there are not many black MacBooks around, but I need the money more than I need a laptop sitting around not being used.
