Lizyliz Level 1 Level 1

I am one of the folks who had a MACbook laptop (it crashed) didn't ask the right questions and bought an iPad3. Now I need a LT please help me and  I am on a tight budget  $600-700  I am a very light level user WORD/video/web few pics, no games.  I am a die hard Apple user. Please don't tell me I need to buy a PC due to my price range.


What's the technical data I should go armed with? Apple referb a lot of $$$ , licensed Apple co? 


I am looking at the following:


Apple MacBook 13 inch Intel Core 2 Duo

90 Day Warranty

2.16 Ghz / 2 GB Ram / 120 GB HD

Lion / iLife / Office

Either a refurbished MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro. Not iBook as if you can afford £400/$650 then you should be going Intel (unless you're an Apple collector).

Frequently Apple offers refurb 11 inch MBA on the website for $750. If you can budget for that it may be an option. That item is not offered today but I see I see it almost all the time.

Some private sellers of used Macs are also a source of good used Macs. One I have dealt with over many years and can speak well of is Wegener Media.




The actual machine is presented in multiple pictures. Upgrades and an extended warranty are offered.
