MacBook Purchase advice

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I'm a poor college student who can't afford to upgrade to the latest & greatest. Currently I'm running my 2006 CoreDuo MacBook, but it's showing its age. I need to upgrade to something even slightly newer than this that can handle more RAM. I've been keeping an eye on ebay to get a gauge on the going rates of different models, but here's where I'm kinda torn... I can only afford $750 tops. That might even be stretching it just a touch.

Anyways...the models I've been considering are the 2008 13.3" Unibody MacBook (not Pro). I'm also looking at the 15" 2008 Penryn MacBook Pro. Basically, I want something aluminum that can run Lion, and can handle more than 2GB RAM.

Any advice you have would be appreciated.
