Macbook Air, Wireless Not Working £500.00

Up for grabs is my brothers MACBOOK AIR. Only selling it because wifi doesnt work and cant afford to have the wifi card replaced. I have been told the wifi card is most probably faulty and needs replacing. I took it down to our local mac specialist and he quoted £120 + VAT without opening it up. I think you could probably get a Mac compatible USB Wifi adaptor, and leave the inbuilt wireless as it is. It's an option.
It does have scratches and a minor dint or two which I have tried to show on the pics. The dint is very small. You are welcome to come and view it if you live local to Bradford.
Everything else about it works fine. It has Leopard installed.
Would highly recommend that this is collected so you can fully inspect and be happy with it before you pay for it. I dont mind if you spend an hour looking at it, and you will get a cup of tea too. And if you dont like it you can leave it. If I deliver it to you and you dont like it then I will accept returns as long as you send it back via Special Delivery.
It comes with the charger, the box, the everything mac booklet, and Operating System CD.
It is out of warranty.
We cannot find the original receipt.

1.6 ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
80GB Hard Drive
2GB DDR2 667MHZ RAM

I also assume this is the C2Duo 1.6ghz version

Would you be able to list the specs
#7
+1 on the specs. Possibly interested...
#8
Would love this, and deffo interested, any chance you are up for trades. i have a htc desire that i have on here, and loads of other stuff. I live in wakefield so could meet up.

Damn, just powered it ON, and it looks and runs MINT, if I had the cash I would buy it from him, lol.
Wakefield is not far from me. Not interested in trades, Sorry.
Just clicked on the 'About this Mac' button:

Mac OS X
Version 10.6
Processor: 1.6GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo
2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

When hovering over the WIFI icon it states "No AirPort card installed". It's got me!
Comes with the VGA and DVI cables so you can connect it to another screen. I think that's what they are for.
The CDs are Mac OS X Install Disc 1 and 2.
The box has marks on it and is a bit worn out but not totally messed up.

Okay well I had a Asus UL30 Ultra Portable Laptop and a HTC Desire for trade, I could have maybe added cash also.
#12
Hi, how many GB does the hard drive have? Thanks.

Just checked the Macintosh HD Information, It states:

Capacity: 79.55GB, which means its 80GB

Am home all day tomorrow so the buyer can collect from me or I can despatch it in the morning for Saturday delivery.

I am really sorry, I would do this if it was mine. I have myself sold my own windows based PCs, and replaced all of them with an imac. So I know how you feel. I never will look back to windows again, Only when I have to use it. Apple Macs just simply work unlike Windows PCs, even though Win7 is a major improvement, - it has let me down by crashing in its greatest hour of need. Mac is the way forward, and I feel a bit guilty by selling this as I could easily get hold of a network wired adaptor and use it like that.
#16
yeah i have a homeplug i do not use that i could of made use of!
