    I want to buy a macbook for my parents as their current laptop is almost dead.

    I can't afford a new one, especially since we are getting an imac soon.

    What are good places to look for them in the UK? Are there any classifieds that specialize in computers that i should be looking at?

    I'm currently looking at ebay and craigslist.

    Any tips are appreciated.

    Do you know about the Apple refurb store?

    They are a little cheaper and are as new.

    I agree. Refurb.Me is good site to hunt for refurbs, low-end MacBook goes for as low as 679£, that's great price for basically new product. Comes with full warranty as well

    Its either that or the Marketplace forum, which you do not yet have access to.
