Anyone know roughly how much I'd get for a 2008 unibody 2.8 core2duo macbook pro with 4gb ram, 500gb hdd and switchable graphics? Or where's a good place to ask?

I sold a 2010 white MacBook a few months back, got £450 for it, you'd probably get similar money for the MBP, given its age.

Those websites are mostly useless, better just checking Ebay, SSD does inflate the price dramatically, it claimed a ridiculous price on my old white MacBook because I installed an SSD.

Mine comes back as £1450…think I paid £1800 3 years ago?? Maybe it got inflated because I ticked SSD Puzzled

EDIT: Selected the quad core i7 processor by mistake Oops

Just opened my macbook air(purchased late 2010) to find one side of the screen covered in vertical coloured lines.

Tried PRAM reset, changing resolutions etc etc and they're stuck there, I can manipulate them if i touch the screen and they're worse now. Is there a fix or am I fucked?

If it's software rather than hardware-related it sounds like resetting the NVRAM might fix it:

This. Preferably a slow painful death with only access to a Windows Vista PC.
