My wife's HP laptop just died (the repair guys say probably motherboard) and I'd like to replace it with an Apple Macbook. She used the laptop for email and surfing while I liked to tote it along on vacations to keep up with the enws and to store photographs. In other words, no heavy demands. I'm thinking of replacing her laptop with a refurb but i thought I'd ask first to ssee what kind of experiences you guys have had with such models. I've been a PC user for many, many years but I recently inherited a PowerMac and I won't go back to Windows for anything. Many thanks.
