    90% of the people I know who own a Mac don't even burn dvd's.

    Also. Im sure for someone who needs a basic computer 1gb of ram will be enough.

    It's a really good deal, but the $800 refurbs are a drastic improvement over those.

    Hey, that's the same as my Macbook and with 4GB of RAM (a cheap upgrade) its an AWESOME machine. I'm very happy with mine - and would've been even more so at $699! :D (But I did get mine for $765, open box...)

    $765 is still a good deal. I sold a year old 2.4 whitebook for $750 on craigslist,mind you with no warranty.

    It's better than going the ebay route that's for sure(can't believe what some auctions get).

    However, a person would be better off spending an extra $150 for the 849.99 refurb:
    extra gig of ram
    MUCH better integrated graphics(nvidia vs. intel)
    a little bigger hd
    a superdrive(for those times YOU may need it)

    then again, If someone who can't afford to spend much is going to go up that much in price. They might as well spend another $50 and buy the $899 unibody refurb with a better screen. But by doing that they would be pushing a G depending on what the tax rate is.

    Wow, tempting!

    But I just got a ThinkPad T40 for $175, and upgraded it to 802.11g wireless and 2 GB of RAM for an extra $90.

    Should I sell it and grab this?

    DO ITTTTTT.

    I was almost thinking about getting one. but I have no need for it since I just sold a whitebook 2.4 with 4 gigs ram and I love my MBP and would not get use out of it.

    But next rev of MacBook Air I'm getting one for sure.
