Hi all, first of all thanks for any help and guidance you can offer. I'm looking to buy a MacBook/MacBook Pro. I just can't afford the mega prices for a new one though. So I've been doing some research and I've found that I could buy a cheap Macbook from eBay, perhaps refurbished. The spec isnt there though so I'm thinking about upgrading to 16GB ram.(readin everymac.com says i could) and upgrading the hdd to an SSD. This feels like the cheapest way to get the best spec macbook and at a decent price. Has anyone attempted this? Is it worth it or should I just save my pennies? I am an IT professional by career so more than capable of installing hardware. Thanks again for the guidance. Would be good if someone here has perhaps done something similar..
