    Thanks to all of you who responded in my earlier thread. Once the store comes back online, I'm going to be getting my first Mac ever, a Refurbished Blackbook, if they're in stock, one of those new wired keyboards, and a Logitech MX Revolution, from some place that might have it in stock.

    Thank you all again for the help I got in the earlier thread, and I'll be sure to post oodles of pictures when they arrive.

    Just one question, though. How does the Macbook run on only 1 gig of RAM, just for schoolwork, and occasional video-watching?

    Mine ran fine on 512, admittedly I never really did anything too taxing on it.

    Ok, thanks for the reassurance. I wasn't sure whether it'd be worth it to upgrade the RAM.

    Now, for another question I had been thinking about: will the refurbished Macbook's also include iLife '08 now?

    I just bought a blackbook the other day. It's interesting definitely. Getting used to the keyboard but other than that I love the battery life and the durability.

    The magsafe power thing is pretty sweet as well. Glossy screen I could do without though.

    Sorry, It doesn't look like it.
    Although it is possible that they haven't updated it yet. Don't bank on it, though.

    Pretty much made my mind up also. Black macbook this friday.

    I wanted a MBP but it was just overkill. I finally so no need as to spending the extra money for working on web, email, and surfing. Maybe watching a few movies and entertainment. Just couldn't justify the extra cost.

    I do like the extra portably of the macbook.
