    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
