I see the refurbed Macbook 1.83 for $749...what a steal. Only thing is it is not Core 2 Duo. Here's what I will be using the laptop for. 1. iChat (with video on a rare occasion) 2. Torrents (work related) 3. Browse the web 4. Write papers 5. Play videos That's about it. $749 is very cheap to me and if I can get away with the stuff I need to do I would be thrilled.
