    A question like that always comes down to what you plan to do with the machine. You will need to pop for a keyboard and mouse, so you need to add say another $100 to that, unless you can also get those from another source.

    The machine in question is not a really zippy box, but would make an excellent day-to-day machine for email, web browsing and other light work. It wouldn't do well for heavy duty stuff like photo editing and video editing.
    My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
    My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
    My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3

    Yeah, pretty much light work like you said. And why 100 dollars for keyboard an mouse, I can get that at walmart for like 20, albeit it's not matching but that doesn't matter to me.

    Edit: oh and downloading stuff too, like frostwire and torrents.

    I think it's a good buy as long it stays running smoothly.

    That seems a good buy, but would you better spending a smidgeon more for a Mac Mini and monitor?
