    Been without a computer now for a month and a half, I'm not dying (between iphone and work computer) but sheesh its surely a handicap.

    I really really want a MacBook Pro.
    Never had a Mac computer before so I'm new to this. Looking at these guys at the apple store though reminds me of the prices of basic laptops back in 2000. Ehh yeah $$$$$ I simply can't justify such prices. So whats the deal with 2-3yr old MacBook Pro's. My budget caps out at about $900. Anything to look out for, any do's and don't's? I'll be purchasing off Craigslist so that I can check it out first. I will be looking to buy mid next month.

    Ahh sorry I forgot to mentioned that since this will be my only home computer it absolutely must be 15' or greater. 13' is waayy to small for me.
