Hey guys, first of all.... I am a heavy PC Users and would like to switch to a Mac. However, I am also a college student in a budget. I have a high end custom built Gaming PC that I built myself and I would like to own a Notebook once again. My HP died on me a couple of years ago and I wish to have a portable PC I can use on the go just for browsing the web and checking e-mail and etc. No plans on playing games on it. I want something light and durable and easy to use. I know that the low end MacBook even the refurbished one priced at $849 will suffice. However, I am also debating whether I should get a Dell Mini 12" Netbook. I have looked at the specs and etc. It is not as fast as the MacBook but it is just as light. Now, heres my Dillema. The Dell Mini 12" Netbook I can get for roughly $600.00 tops at the best configuration. Now, there is a MacBook on the refurbish list on Apple's Online store that is listed at $849.00 I believe. So thats a price difference of $250.00.... for that price, I can get a much better operating system as well as an excellent computer that is faster than the NetBook as well as an extra 1.3" of screen Haha. Sounds like a good deal right? Yes indeed! However, here's another thing. If I do decide to get the refurbished MacBook at $849.00, then there's another refurbished Unibody MacBook for $1099.... another $250.00 more! and I can get the latest MacBook available! So yes, thats my Dillema looking at that point of view. So Basically for twice as much as a Dell Mini 12" NetBook, I can get the latest MacBook at the refurbished price. What do you guys think I should do? Like I said, I am a college student though I really need this notebook. If I can convice my parents to pay half the price for the Unibody MacBook then I would get it It was my birthday yesterday so it would be a good timing.
