    Think it's a good deal? I sure do...let me know your thoughts...also if anyone wants to know where to buy shoot me a PM. It's the computer store at the college I go to but you don't have to be a student to buy.

    Hm. Not super-great, given that you'll have to throw in more cash for RAM, but that's a pretty nice deal. If you'll be happy with the processor, I'd say go for it.

    $699 for the refurbished 1 GHz model on Apple.com.

    I think that's a great deal. It's cheaper than you can get ANY of the refurbs at the Apple store for, and it's only one revision back. Think about it this way- what kind of Windows laptop can you get for $599?...
    You can get an extra 512 of RAM for less than $70, then you're set.

    It will be great for a student or for work relearted stuff. I would recommend you add some RAM to "atleast" 512, anything less and you will be waiting for stuff to computer more then you work.

    That's a great deal. Throw a gig of ram at it (I could get a nice stick for $100) and you have a nice affordable laptop. For $700 it beats the snot out of Apple refurb...of course there is the warrantee issue...does it come with one?

    I just assumed so because the OP states that it's from the college computer store.
