    I want to submit iOS apps developer developed for me. What is the cheapest way doing this?

    • What is the cheapest used intel mac available for me?
    • iBooks are all non-intel?
    • All Macbooks are intel?
    • Are there old imacs available that are cheaper than macbooks?

    Thank you!

    If you already have a monitor/keyboard/mouse then an older Mac Mini might be your cheapest option. If you want a notebook then all Macbooks are Intel. The original 2006 white Macbook was Core Duo and then later in 2006 they shifted to Core 2 Duo. Pick up an older 2006 Macbook for a few hundred $$$.

    Being that it's your first Mac, you probably want one with full support and warranty.

    Refurb are great deal, comes with full warranty, and looks brand new:

    If you do get used, get it if it has restore disk. Erase and reinstall OS.

    FWIW you can generally find a 2006/2007 iMac Core 2 Duo in full working condition cheaper than either a used mini or broken screen Macbook. ~$250-300.

    Googling for "used mac" I found a number of retailers selling Intel Mac Minis from around $500 and Intel iMacs from around $700.
