    ok so I have the option a used black MacBook 2.0ghz processor 1gb ram 120 hd with AppleCare until 2010 for 800 no box or manuals but leopard is installed.

    Or a new one base line the white 2.16 or whatever on apples site for 1050 with tax 1 year limited warranty.

    I think the 2ghz models only had GMA950 (I could be wrong here), where as the newer macbook will have the faster integrated graphics.

    If the used macbook is over 1 year old you will not be able to get the extra applecare for it.

    Have you thought about getting a refurbed macbook from apple?

    You can make a fair old saving that way.

    Does the first one have the leopard discs? No box and manuals...ok, but no discs, I would never buy.

    I would probably go with a refurb from Apple myself. Slightly newer tech and I'd bet it had the better gpu.

    The 2.16 has the GMA950 as well. That's the machine I have.
