I have been looking into buying a Mac for a couple of years now but I have been waiting for my dell to die. I mainly want a Mac because I make youtube videos and I would much rather use iMovie than Vegas or pinnacle. I want to downsize to a 13 (from a 15) and attach a dell 21 monitor when I am at home and editing. In researching the Macbook Pro I have found that the base model will probably suit my needs. My question is: Is buying a refurb 2010 model a bad idea for what I want to do? (Australian student, incredibly poor) I specifically had this one in mind: http://store.apple.com/au/product/FC374X/A?mco=MTgwOTc3Mjg Programs I need to be able to run -Office Student -iMovie and possibly later Final cut express -Photoshop for gif making (however this is optional) -Garageband and later possibly Logic Express I don't mind if it isn't superfast, but i don't want 5 minute long lags. Thank you!
