    Hey guys, I know this should probably be in the Macbook section or whatever, but their is a lot more traffic here and its just a quick question.

    A good friend of mine is willing to sell me her Macbook and a case for it for 575 USD. It is a little over a year old and it has PS and Office on it. Everything else is stock on it.

    Do you think this is a good deal? Or should i just wait till i can buy the new one?

    Even for the most basic macbook that is a killer deal, what kind of condition is it in?

    She said it's in basically factory condition. The only thing wrong with it is that the plastic sometimes pops off at the top corner where the outer casing meets the screen panal, she said it's not a problem, just kind of annoying. It's the most basic macbook. I'm not sure of the specs off the top of my head, but i plan on maxing out the ram and HD with the extra cash if i buy it.

    Yeah, but anyway, that's pretty much a half price. What's the condition? And Specs/RAM?

    so you think it's worth it?

    I will be going to college next year and majoring in Computer science. I would like my next laptop to take me thorugh most of college. I just don't want it to be so phased out in 2 years that i'll have to buy a brand new one. I would rather get a new one now then this one now and another one later.
