Okay well, my birthday is on November 7th, which is Tuesday and I am getting a notebook for my birthday. I have $530 and my parents will pay the rest. I am stuck between getting a 1.83 ghz refurbished MacBook and a Toshiba Satellite M115-S3094. The Toshiba is about $650 and it has a 1.6 Core Duo processor, dvd and cd writer drive, 80 gb hdd, 14.1 inch screen, 512 MB RAM, Intel GMA 650, built in wireless card, and Windows XP Media Center. I'm kinda stuck between getting a MacBook and getting the Toshiba. I'm a little worried about buying the MacBook because I think that as soon as I buy it, Apple will put C2D cpus in them and I will be stuck with the old version. Any rumors when they will put C2D's in the MacBook? Also, is anyone here selling a MacBook for a reasonable price?
