Nikon D3100

am thinking about buying a Nikon D3100 to use for my macro photos. Any good or bad comments on this model. I believe that I can find one around $250. Also, does it have live view as my Nikon D40 does not and is inconvenient for me to use ?
All replies are appreciated.

I believe that the D3100 does have live view. Not heard of anything that would deter ownership, but if you are going to use it for macro it might be as well to see if there is a remote release connection, manual mode and mirror lock up as often the entry level models do not have the features that more advanced photography need.
