Less than 150. The point is that these laptops are GOVT owned. They're not allowed to take them and put them on eBay and make a profit off of them. They have to sell them at a fixed price.

Everyone else sees that it's a good deal. I'm the middleman and as far as I see it everyone is pleased with what I'm offering.

Yeah, what about the OS? Do they come with a legitimate version of OS X to reformat with, or are would we be simply left with whatever's been dumped on them?

Assuming the above answer is the former, I want to buy 3 for $400.

Well the problem is that the students are careless with them, they don't take care of them, so they needed repair a lot. My brother runs the program for my school. They're not all that bad you just have to NOT be a retard. They're only selling the ones that are quality and they are being fully restored to new condition.

here guys ill help you all out with some info

schools completely F-UP laptops with their network sh17 and loads of sh17 to keep kids off porn sites and myspace. that stuff is what makes these laptops seem crappier then they are

here is a complete statistics thing for the laptops
http://everymac.com/systems/apple/ib...ibook_800.html

also guys you can upgrade ram in these babies to 256 for 60 bucks on ebay
and im sure you could go 512 or 1 gig if you looked around for 100-200 bucks

this isnt like a serious gaming laptop but it will certainly due for looking at porn on those lonely late nights when your chillin on your bed with your wireless card plugged in

plus battery life is 5 hours. what more can you want for 150 <3
