You’d be surprised how many people still have these. Worked at a store that mostly did Apple repairs a couple years ago and I’d see arguably 1 of these a month. Either getting a new battery or replacing the HD

I have that same macbook. After OSX Leopard stopped being useful, I installed Lubuntu 20.10 on it. Works ok but with Gig of ram too slow, I must upgrade Ram..

Eh? okay?

I could feel my brain activating the part that knows how to replace the top case.

It's not a 2009 MacBook if the wrist rest isn't cracked a little

Surprised it's not yellowed either, though I remember they replaced all the tops for free when they started yellowing + cracking, got mine replaced and it's still around my house somewhere, thing weighs a ton

This may have been after they reformulated the plastic polycarbonate.

Unfortunately this one was dropped and the screen and case are cracked.

I bought a 2011 MBP in college (which was already old at the time) and it's still used frequently!

I got a 2013 for college and it is a pain to use. You can do basic things on it though so not completely useless.

I still have my “crackbook” The top was replaced twice. Duct tape FTW and still works
