I have a MacBook that I don't use. I wanted to offer it to you before I put it up for sale to the general public.

It is an Aluminum Unibody MacBook with a 13" LED backlit LCD. I upgraded the RAM to 4GB DDR3, and the Hard Drive to a Western Digital 500GB.

The full specs are below. I have never dropped it and everything works great. No blemishes. This is also the last model with a user-serviceable battery.

I am asking $800 for it. I still have the box and all materials with it.

The first "I'll take it" gets it.
