I made a post like this a few months ago, but the circumstances have changed, and I need advice. As of right now I have $500 in cash. I'm in desperate need of an upgrade from my eMac. Most of the issue is lack of hard drive space, so I need at least an 80 gb hard drive. I play the Sims 2 occasionaly, and light video editing in iMovie, but most of the time I'm listening to music or surfing the web. I know I'll be able to get at least $200 for my eMac, and I can take a few hundred out of the bank. I'm having trouble making a decision. I want my budget to be under $900, but I would be reluctantly willing to go higher. I thought about a Mac Mini, but the lack of monitor is kinda a deal killer for me. I'm leaning strongly towards a refub base MacBook. There was a 2.0 gHz for $850 in the store about an hour ago, now its gone. Can anyone offer any help? I'd like the mini a lot better if it had more power, which might happen in June. I don't want to buy a MacBook and have it be updated so the price drops. Sorry if i'm being confusing, but its hard for me to get all of my concerns out! Thanks in advance.
