I purchased a used 2010 Macbook a week or so ago on a whim (it was cheap and in fantastic condition). I have to say...what a great little laptop! I'm really enjoying it so far. For some reason, I love the plastic unibody build of it (which I know many people don't). There's something about it that feels very accessible. The industrial design is also fantastic... "unapologetically plastic". I have owned a 2011 13" Air since 2011 and have to say that this Macbook is every bit as quick for standard tasks (web browsing, etc). I was quite surprised and impressed. With an outdated CPU (C2D), regular HDD and 4 gigs of ram, it is holding its own quite well. Anyway, I know that these plastic macbooks sometimes get a bad rap, but for what it's worth, I am really enjoying mine!
