    I'm NO good with computers, and this is my first Mac that I'm buying.
    I mainly want one for GarageBand and iLife, so is this a good deal?
    You smart people out there...would I get a lot of features? Or is this a really old computer/bad deal?

    Thanks somuch!!!

    Here's the link:

    But what about this one? It shows you a picture of the Mac with the screen...and the feedback is really good...?

    THAT IS NOT A MAC. THAT IS NOT MADE BY APPLE.

    Buy from the actual Apple store, Amazon, or Best Buy.

    Seller has ZERO feedback; has never sold anything before and will now never get a chance to sell anything again. I'm reporting it.

    Wow, it looks like an Acer Netbook and they put an apple sticker on it or something.

    A scam. It's a piece of crap Windows notebook with an Apple sticker on it.

    Again, buy from Apple directly since you can't tell a real computer from a plastic shell.

    ...it actually almost looks like one of the new Asus "seashell" model 1008 or 1005 machines... those and the new 1000HE all use chiclet keyboards... but the 1005/1008 are supposed to be thin and shaped like that...
