Hi all, So I've decided that I want a Mac and now is the time. I've always been a fan of Apple, but have never had the money to switch. With my laptop being 5 years old, having no battery life, and missing a few keys, I really need to upgrade, so... I've decided that for my usage, I don't need anything more than a MacBook. I'm using it for the most basic things; browsing, chatting with friends, photos, music, videos, etc. I don't need to do extreme film/video/audio work, I'm a console gamer, etc. so unless someone can REALLY justify it, I don't think a Pro is necessary for me. My problem is deciding which model to get. For starters, I don't know anything about processors, graphic cards, RAM, any of that stuff. I don't know how much difference I'm going to see in 2.0 GhZ to 2.1 to 2.4. Likewise, I don't know how much RAM I need. Secondly, I don't know if I should get one of the new MacBooks or get a refurbished one from the last generation. If there's no huge increase in value to me, then I can't justify the price increase. All I want is a Macbook that runs smoothly, lets me talk to my friends, share pictures, video, music, etc. and gets what I need done. I like it being fast with no slowdown, no freezing, crashing, etc. Any suggestions on what to do? Refurb old gen or new? GhZ/RAM? For a basic user, please help me pick the right one so I get the best value for my money!
