    That's a good price when comparing it to the Apple store price. Just remember: the new 21" has the screen glued on and no RAM upgrades possible...... I won't give you my opinion because it will be your machine, so you need to make the decision!

    While you're making your decision, remember these since they'll make a difference with pricing:

     

    On the new ones, you need an external DVD burner; Apple's is USB and $79. I bought one years ago that is Firewire and has its own power supply. Almost any burner should do - check prices/features.

     

    And, especially on the new ones (but I do it anyway), consider getting Applecare which extends your initial 1 year warranty into three. I just had the logic board replaced on mine (they say it's about $800 - 900) free of charge in my home thanks to Applecare. You can buy it from Apple ($169) or other resellers including Amazon:
