A Dear Old Friend
Safe to say, my MacBook was a pretty big part of my life for the last almost four years, and I felt a little tinge of sadness parting with it. The good news is though, it's not dead, just passed on to someone else. And I was even able to get a good bit more than I thought for it. Being as old as it is, I was only thinking I might get a couple hundred for it, but after researching what they are going for online, and even talking with someone who works for Apple, I discovered that macbooks, and this model in particular, have a remarkably high resale value. So in the end I had no trouble selling it for $500. In fact, the demand was such that if I had ten more of them right now, I'm fairly certain I could sell them all on campus for the same price without a problem. People were practically fighting to get it from me!
So anyhow, that will go further than I thought toward paying for the new one that I just bought :)
