I am currently looking at buying my wife a nice used Macbook or Macbook Pro for Christmas. I am currently looking at a very nice 2006 Macbook Pro, 2 GHz CoreDuo, 2 gig of RAM, 80 gig HDD. This Macbook Pro looks almost brand new and comes with the box, all original packaging and install discs. Even has the foam insert that Apple ships between the keyboard and screen. Also comes with an external portable 120 gig western digital HDD in the original box (it may be brand new) and two nice cases for the computer and a case to carry cables in. I can get this computer for about 475, maybe 450. The Macbook is a 2008 2.1 GHz Core2Duo with 1 gig of RAM and 120 gig HD. The seller of the Macbook says the bottom of the LCD screen has some very minor pixel washout, which from what I've read is common with these older Macbook(?). Anyway, it is in very good shape and also comes with the original box and all the original packaging (even the Apple stickers are there) and an incase computer case. I think I can get the Macbook for around 400 or maybe a little less. My question ultimately is, which should I get? Thanks everyone! P.S. May want to add that my wifes computer usage normally amounts to basic web surfing, watching videos, and doing some word processing and school work.
