    New to Mac, what to buy?
    (Not "MacBook" only, wasn't sure which prefix to select)

    I've been a PC user all my life. One of my computers is about to die and I am considering buying a used Mac (notebook) as a replacement. I have noticed that Macs are much more expensive than PCs which is why I am looking to buy used.

    Obviously I realize I will not get anything top of the line, although I do want a good computer. Can you suggest a few Mac notebooks that I might be able to find in the $500-600 region? I would much prefer to buy something refurbished, but from the looks of things, the refurbished models are all very expensive too. Where would you buy used from?

    Thanks for any light you can shed...

    Thanks... However I did say I was new to the Mac world so your answer was a little vague. Did you mean any of these?
