    Well let's see for $200 more you get a factory sealed iBook with no scratches plus not a whole bunch of potential junk in the computer..and an extra 2 months of a warranty! IMO the only way to go with used is through Apple with their refurbished..there practically brand-new..most of them are returned computers that people brought back within 10 days..

    Wow, you guys are brutal. There's no guarantee the new one is going to last longer than the old one. Who's to say the they didn't do a software reload to take it back to factory specs, and maybe they took maticulous care of the notebook, as I know I do, and I bet most of you as well. The way I see it is, get some pictures of the used equipment, ask them about the software, (worst case is you can reload it yourself). Only downside is maybe they'll charge a bit much for shipping and you lose 2 months of Apple warranty, which by the way you can still extend if desired.

    Yea I am still looking. I mean, I am a student so 200 goes a long way. I am gonna try to get an ibook of this guy I know for 1050.00. Its 2 months old and has a 14 inch screen. I figured, what the heck, I can save 250 and at the end of ten months get a student discounted apple care warranty with the money I saved.

    Have you checked to see if you are eleigible for a student discount at the Apple store? That should go for about $1200 with student discount.

    yea i did check actually. It is 1200.00. I am currently looking into one right now for about a thousand, maybe a bit more, and it already has 512 ram and a superdrive. Although I don't really need the superdrive because I have a dvd burner on the pc. I might be able to pick one up off a guy for 900 now or maybe a grand. I am thinking I should just give in a little more but I am going broke right now and gonna get a job
    (student) so if I don't have to give up the 200 I really don't want to. But if differences are 150 or less I might just go to apple. Any real difference in a 1.2 and a 1.33 ibook? I mean any real noticable difference?

    Ah, that is little different. I thought it was a stock, minimum configuration iBook as listed in post #3. I would get the used one if you feel reasonably confident it is in good shape. The extra memory and super drive are more useful than an extra 10% in processor speed IMHO. You can get by on 256MB, but just barely.

    If at all possible make sure to get a copy of the original purchase receipt. you will need it if you want to get an AppleCare warranty down the road.
