I have this opportunity to buy my friend's 2008 Mac Book (white plastic ? body) for $150. Hardware Overview: Model Name: MacBook Model Identifier: MacBook4,1 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 3 MB Memory: 2 GB Bus Speed: 800 MHz Boot ROM Version: MB41.00C1.B00 SMC Version (system): 1.31f1 I have been using Power Mac G4 from I believe 2002 ? But want to go more portable. Then there are other options such as buying used MacBook Pro from last year on place like eBay, etc. Or refurb from Apple. Then of course buy brand new ( either current model or soon to be updated model. All those options will cost me more, a lot more of course. I need to use it for personal computing purpose ( daily eMail, daily Web Browser, Occasional Skype, use of iTune music (import / rip CD, etc), occasional use of iMoivie if I ever traveled, and Organizing personal Photos and editing). I would also need to transfer all the files ( music files, photos, documents) from my current desk top Power Mac G4 to A lap top (do not know how I can safely do this). I have a feeling Desk Top is more? reliable than Lap top also? Anyway...... I like the idea of down sizing and its portability. I do not know what to do (what to buy). I have been thinking about this for a long long time but I just do not know whats the right thing to do. Should I just buy my friend's computer for $150 for now and buy another one later but shortly ? Need feedback please.
