    Hey! I managed to recruit my cousin to join the dark side and buy himself a MacBook Pro now i'm supposed to find him a used one on Amazon (entry level, nothing too fancy) can anyone help me find something decent? I'm not familiar with buying used items online.

    Is this good enough?

    Thank you, that was helpful i think the Refurbished 11.6-inch MBA Core i5 falls within his budget.

    Rather than Amazon, or eBay, or others which are similar, I would strongly recommend Apple themselves and take a look at the refurbished section.

    With a refurb, you will get a computer that is brand new (even though the specifications might not be the most recent), offered at a generous (sometimes very generous) discount, and covered by all of Apple's warranties and guarantees.

    For my part, I have bought refurb computers in the past and found them excellent.

    My wife and I buy all of our computers from Apple refurb. They are essentially new machines that come in a plain box. Extremely pleased with every one we have purchased.
