[WTS] Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 13" (White)

I am selling my Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 13" (White). I bought this laptop in Early 2008 from Apples NewYork store. It have been a amazing computer and have not given me trouble once during past 2 years. It originally came with 1GB of DDR2 ram, which I upgraded to 2 GB. Apple designed this product for students, and beginners but believe you me this machine have been able to take any thing I have thrown its way. Running from Photoshop to very demanding Final Cut Studio all have run quite smoothly on it. This machine have been a faithful partner, but as I have bought MacBook Pro this is pretty useless to me. Continue reading to find all the specs and relevant information regarding this machine.

Most of the people think that finding softwares for Macbook will be a problem but ever since Apple shifted to Intel Architecture this have not been a problem. Almost all the famous softwares that are available for Windows are available for Mac as well. If one particular software is not available Mac have got a better looking alternate for it.

Further more I have a huge library of Mac softwares. . . . . .

Currently it is running on Mac OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard (click to read more), the latest and most advanced Operating System. It is able to support both 32 and 64 Bits software.

Running Windows on Macbook

A lot of callers have queries about being able to run Windows on Macbook. It is some thing I must explain here so before calling you can have an idea.

Yes Windows (7, Vista and XP) in both 32bit and 64bit can run on this machine. There are two ways to do that.

1- Using Virtualization technologies. With virtualization softwares Windows can run inside a virtual environment with out rebooting. I highly recommend using this option as you can use Windows and Snow side by side.

There are two softwares available for that

a- VMWare Fusion

b- Parallel Desktop

Both of the softwares are quite simple and Geekbench have not found much difference between the two. So one is as good as the other.

2- Boot Camp Assistant. The second method is to install a Windows Copy on a separate partition using "BootCamp", a native application that comes with Snow Leopard. The procedure is quite straight forward and requires creation of a separate partition (as Windows does not recognize Mac OS Extended file system) and a boot order, all automated. When the machine will boot it will get you an option to select the operating system. Both OS remain separate with separate file systems.

In my personal opinion the use of Visualization software is the best as it can seamlessly integrate Windows and Snow with out ever need to to leave my operating environment. The resource allocation can be a bit tricky as half half are shared between the 2 OS.

Cosmetic Issues

Please make sure you read them before you start asking me any questions. There are no other issues unless mentioned as all the hardware is in perfect working order.

The main cosmetic issue with White Macbooks was that of structural integrity (polycarbonate frame). This was a problem encountered by all the white Macbooks before 2008 and only now Apple have resolved this problem with the newer generations. This problem in no way affects the functionality of this machine but is just a cosmetic issue. There are no cracks or any other structural defects on the outer shell , but only on the areas of palm rests and inner lid few fragments have chipped off.

[h]DVI Adapter[/h]

Other then this I will also give DVI adapter which can be used to connect Macbook with Secondary display or Multimedia Projector for free. (worth Rs. 3500)

[h] Please note I want to sell it for cash, NO TRADING only cash. Please also do not say you can buy it for XYZ price, my suggestion is to buy from there. Time is precious so do not waste it[/h]
