    I have for sale my 2008 Aluminium Unibody MacBook, which is in very good condition.

    It has been upgraded from the standard configuration and now has a fast 750Gb HDD, along with 4Gb of memory.

    The full specifications can be seen here, although bare in mind that this item has been upgraded from this standard configuration:

    MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 13" (Unibody) Specs (Late 2008 Aluminum, MB466LL/A, MacBook5,1, A1278, 2254) @ EveryMac.com


    It comes in its original retail packaging, along with all the original documentation & the original charger.

    This item is in perfect working order and has been reset to it's original factory settings. This can be updated, free of charge, to OSX EL CAPITAIN (which I was running before resetting), although I have not done this, as it would lock the computer to my own iTunes account.


    *******This MacBook is in very good condition, however, there are a couple of small marks on the screen, which are barely visible and do not disrupt normal day to day useage (I'm told that cerium oxide will get rid of the marks). It is only fair that I mention this in the description. I have tried to photograph the marks on the last picture. If you zoom in you can just about see the horizontal marks in the centre of the picture.*******

    This item will be posted upon clearance of payment to U.K. ONLY addresses. Please Do not ask me to ship this item outside of the UK.

    Item will be posted via Royal Mail tracked parcel service.​

    Price and currency: £265
    Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
    Payment method: PPG/Bank transfer
    Location: Bolton, Greater Manchester
    Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

    I think it can be removed by using cerium oxide, which is a glass polishing compound, cheap to buy on eBay for about £5.

    I can't go as low as £200 delivered either I'm afraid. Delivery/insurance on this would be about £25, so I can't go any lower than £250 delivered.

    Sorry buddy, but I'm holding out on the price, mainly because of the delivery costs involved. £250 delivered is my lowest price.

    I'm away on holiday at the moment, so can't do much till I get home anyway.

    Still for sale. I have bought some cerium oxide to remove the small. Arms from the screen, just in case this is putting people off. I will post further pictures when I have removed them.
