Hi all, I did a quick search prior to creating this thread but apparently I couldn't find the right words to type in the search bar to gather the necessary threads so I apologize if this topic has been done to death. I'm preparing for college soon and considering buying a MacBook. But, I'm having a hard time deciding whether I should purchase a brand new 2.0 GHz MacBook or a refurbished 2.4 GHz MacBook. I won't be taking any courses that will require me to run any intensive software and apart from using my MacBook for school purposes, I plan to do some casual gaming such as StarCraft II and Diablo III in the not so distant future. I've heard that in some cases that there are advantages to buying a refurbished Mac such as the process it goes through to insure that it will run properly. It may sound strange, but the only thing holding me back from buying a refurbished Mac is that I feel a little uncomfortable with the thought that my first Mac will have been used but at the same time I'd like to get the most for my money. So I wanted to ask for everyone's opinion/input from those who have purchased a refurbished Mac. Is the extra 400 MHz, 90 GB of HD space and illuminated keyboard really worth it in your opinion? Is there a noticeable difference? Or should I just be peace at mind with buying a brand new 2.0 GHz MacBook?
