    Hi, im in the market for a new computer, and wated to get a macbook. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to buy a previous generation macbook, for the best price. I've seen the Refurbished macbooks in apple, but im not sure i could do that, as i would have to finance it. I saw macmall, they have new 2.2ghz macbooks for 1099 after rebate, with 6 month no interest. So i was just wondering, if anyone knew of any deals that were better than this?

    Any help is appreciated, Thanks.

    I'm sure this isn't the response you wanted, but I would recommend saving up a bit more and getting a refurb from Apple. I have had friends who have gotten refurbs, and others that have gotten them from third party sources (websites, craigslist, ebay, etc.). There's been greater success/pleasure from that former group.

    Yeah, I've also heard nothing but good things about apple refurbs. I'll definitely take that into consideration. Any more ideas?

    Oh, the units from macmall are brand new. Forgot to say that
