Hello dear Mac people! I am considering getting an iLife (he he) and buying a used macbook. My budget isn't very big and I don't see the sense it it being very big because I wouldn't do SO much on it. This laptop would sit in the living room and be what I use to browse, write (I have a 30 page paper coming up in a year.. and I guess more will follow), download (here's where my little netbook holds up a white flag), and that's it! I'm not sure I would even watch many tv shows or movies on it because my boyfriend will set it up so that I can watch stuff from my laptop on the TV (through a media center.. I have no clue how he does any of it! Just that he can. ). I wouldn't even carry it around. Anyways, my awesome Windows tablet laptop died last year. Died. It had a faulty NVDIA chipset and will not even boot. I didn't buy it in the US, wasn't able to take part in the recall and now I have a very expensive paperweight. :/ I got a cheap netbook that is now a year old and... not a laptop! It's painfully slow. Battery is terrible. Etc. etc. I have an Iphone 4 I love and am thinking that maybe a mac is a good idea. This seems to be the best deal I have found and want opinions on it from people who know! It's a Macbook bought in 2009 (still has six months of warranty) and I get it with the receipt, Silver unibody case (I saw pictures, it seems to be in perfect condition), and these are the specs: > 2,4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo > 2GB 1067 MHz DDR3 RAM > 500GB Harddrive with7200 u/min > GeForce 9400M > 13" screen He would upgrade it to 4gb ram (the Harddrive was upgraded from 250 to 500) before giving it to me and is selling it because he upgraded to a Macbook pro. I have to replace the battery. How much longer do you guys think this laptop will live? What kind of battery would I need to buy? Will it be able to run Lion? Will it meet my needs? He wants 450 euros (I live in Austria) which seems like a fair deal. Is it? I also saw an ad for an 11 inch 64 gb macbook air for 400 but it seems like that would be using a netbook again! right? sorry this is so long but I know nothing about these things and could really use some advice! Thank you so so much in advance!
