    So I am on a really limited budget so I am choosing between a used white (early 2008) 2.1ghz 2gb memory 120gb Macbook that I found for $550 or a brand new pc laptop (I dont have any particulars in mind) for around the same price. Is the price I found the macbook for a good deal (it is in good condition and comes with apple care) or should I opt for the pc laptop that is more powerful?

    Also, will the macbook at its specs perform well on a 22" external monitor?

    I'd always opt for a good apple laptop over a PC. That being said, the price is pretty good. The laptop probably listed at $999 brand new. AppleCare is a definite plus. Keep in mind I'm a bit biased since I prefer macs over any other platform.

    Trying to keep an open mind, I would suggest the macbook, if for stability alone. The price seems good assuming as you said it was in good shape. You are one a mac forum so you can see where most everybody here stands.
    Good luck with your purchase.

    Sounds good for the macbook.

    If you want a PC, get the PC. If you want OS X, get the apple.
