I Am currently in my second year of homeschool high school. I do a dvd based schooling program and am looking to get some device to play DVDs. I can only afford cheap laptops or old MacBooks and since I like OS X, I thought I'd look around. I have 220$ and am only looking to smoothly run basic tasks like watching dvds surfing the web writing papers watching YouTube videos keeping a calendar etc and was looking at either a MacBook Pro 2006, or MacBook 2008 plastic white finish. I only need it to work for about 2 1/2 years before I go to college where I will get a better one. Will one of those computers supply my needs, do I need to get a Windows laptop, or should I look for a different MacBook? thanks so much for the help!
