Late 2008 Macbook Pro, Still viable?


Jul 13, 2015
Hi, I was thinking of getting this late 2008 Macbook Pro I found for $140 usd (do you think this price is good? How's the screen on it?) it needs a battery replacement as it doesn't hold charge but other then that it's in good condition. I'm looking for a inexpensive laptop and to introduce myself to mac and to dual boot linux on it. I plan on upgrading the ram and hdd to a ssd and 8 gbs of ram. I also plan on using it for a copy of Hackintosh. What do you guys think should I get it? Your input is highly appreciated. Thank you
