    Specs:
    2011 13" MBP 2.3ghz, 8gig ram, OS 10.8.5
    The only brand new Mac's available for $700 or under are:

    - an entry level Mac-Mini
    - a refurbished 11" MacBook Air (a bit more than $700)

    Refurbished 11.6-inch MacBook Air 1.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 - Apple Store (U.S.)

    Other than this you're talking used. And this is when you need to start looking at eBay and Craig's List.

    Died how?

    You dropped it in the swimming pool?

    You threw it out the window and a bus ran over it.

    Or something inexpensive, like the hard drive died - about $100 fix.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Heart attack. Too much french fries, hot dogs, BBQ ribs, cheese, funnel cake, etc.

    27" 5K iMac, 3.3GHz, 256GB Flash Storge, 16GB memory and OS X.11.3.
    Tell us about your old Mac, the model and operating system. May well only be the hard drive.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
