Jan 12, 2007, 12:55 PM
Hi all

been watching these forums a LOT lately

looking to purchase a mac notebook of some kind:)

for schoolwork, photo editing and a bit of video editing

i have a desktop for gaming so thats not really essential, although it would be nice to be able to play simple games like football manager and maybe a bit of worms

I have about $900 - 950 to spend

what would you all recommend?:confused: :confused:

I was thinking either a G4 powerbook or a refurb macbook maybe

On my budget what would you say is the best option

thank you

Refurb 1.83 ghz/512 mb/60 gb hard drive for $799+$50 tax = $850. Buy 1 gb memory from Newegg for $100 shipped.

Then you have a machine perfect for what you need:
1.83 ghz
1.5 gb memory
60 gb hard drive

All for $950 shipped. Sounds like a plan to me :D
