    MacBooks are no longer in production so you basically have a choice from the first to the last. Personally I would not buy a used MacBook any earlier than the late 2008 MacBook unibody. The earlier MacBooks all used integrated graphic chipsets. In other words, from the late 2008 MacBook up and until the last ones produced (Mid 2010) is what I would look for.

    Thanks, that's good advice, I just wanted to say by MacBook I also meant MacBook pro and air models.

    Then you have to say..."MacBook Pro" or "MacBook Air". If you want a term that encompasses all currently selling Apple portable computers...then that term would be "Apple Notebooks".

    Then the question would be..."What is the best Apple notebook computer for me?"
