My daughters school is very into the technology age so much so that she is issued an iPad 2 for diffrent workshops in class. Anyway she has to do a portion of her homework online and the school uses pages mostly and google docs sometimes. I have been looking for an older version MacBook to buy her that obviously won't cost 1000+ bucks. I'm so confused by all of the models that are on eBay. I guess I'll stay what I'm looking for and you can tell me if that exists. She needs a basic machine that runs apple software I was looking for an older model maybe 08-09 version but I want a new enough version that is still supported in terms of software updates. Doesn't need an awesome processor or graphics this is basically for some internet usage for her school sites and Mac apps. What model should I pursue? I'm trying to spend as little as possible and I'm not opposed to an older model if it works. A Mac mini would be ok but she will need to do her work on the move at times. Any help is appreciated thanks! ---------- Also would a chromebook work? I know she can access pages from the icloud site.
