I have decided to buy a used Mac for school as my school uses them and I see no point in saving up for a brand new €1000 laptop that will only be used for a few years then thrown out/sold at a much lower price when I want buy a new MPB for college. I am stuck between two options. I am buying them from a local Apple reseller which also sells used Macs. I'm in 2nd year in Ireland which is 8th grade in America. My parents said I could get one if I got straight A's in my summer exams (which I did) and if I funded it myself. I would be using it for writing essays, doing presentations and some light iLife/Final cut pro x (very light)/ and some Photoshop 1. Used White Macbook Late 2006 1.83ghz processor 80gb hard drive 1gb RAM PLUS external hard drive 2 year warranty from store €399 2. Used Black Macbook Early 2008 2.4ghz processor 250gb hard drive 2gb RAM PLUS 1 year warranty from store and iWork €550 So what do you think. Personally I don't really like the look of the black but I don't want to change my mind simply on aesthetics or I would be just fulfilling the stereotype. What do you think should I get the white MacBook and use the money I saved to upgrade the RAM or suck it up and buy the black and possibly upgrade RAM in future?
