Hey! Ok, so I've looked around threads and stuff and decided I should ask this question. I was chatting with an Apple person last night but they weren't very helpful. Moving on. Ok so I've got a PC. It works pretty well having just turned a fabulous three years old. However I am a journalism/media student and I prefer Macs over PCs. I have been mentioning them to my father who doesn't seem to thrilled by them or their price tags. I don't need a MacBook Pro, not to mention the price tag of even a refurb MacBook Pro would give my dad a heart attack. So MacBook it is. I love the new ones, however I need a firewire port in order to use the internet so obviously the new ones are out. I have been stalking the online store. Either I go the route of student discount ($949) for the current white 2.1 GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo 1GB DDR2 Memory 120GB hard drive1 Intel GMA X3100 graphic they have, a refurb at the same price, or a black 2.4 GHz clearance that I really want, for $1,199. Any tips, tricks, suggestions, opinions, etc?
