So I am getting a mac MY FIRST ONE. I have 3 choices and a few hours to make the right one.

All of them are MacBook Pros but different year, price, specs,

First is this:
MacBook from ebay if it doesnt work its item # 180561553396

(I won it, but if i dont want it my father will buy it for himself)

Second:
I can get my friends MacBook Pro he got last summer. Its 13.3 inches 2GB Ram 2.26GHz for 800

Third I can get:
Bundle- 13-in MacBook Pro 2.4GHz

I am in OSU so I can still get that deal, i just spoke to them yesterday.

Which choice would you go with? Is there a big difference between these computers?

I am low on money but I want to use this computer for the next 4+ years.

Thanks so much. Any feedback would be great

Well the bidding on the first one has ended, so your not gonna get that one. I'd go with the second one that you can get from your friend, has a good processor speed, decent amount of Ram, and it's not gonna Break the Bank.

I have personally owned all three of those computers, and I can tell you that I honestly could not tell a difference between the three in general everyday computing. The only time I noticed any difference was while rendering through several different video software packages. And even then, it was just a matter of a few minutes in a 1 hour process. If the memory card slot or firewire port is a necessity, you have to go with one of the latter two. Personally, I would go for the 2.26 for $800.

15" 2.53ghz i5 MacBook Pro (2010) 8gb, 500gb HD - 60gb OWC SSD
13" 2.4ghz MacBook Unibody (late 2008) 4gb, 250gb
24" 2.4ghz Aluminum iMac (mid 2007) 3gb, 1tb
mini 2.0ghz - 32gb iPhone 4

Oh okay, yeah I'd go for the $800 one. Seems like a really dependable computer that's gonna last you a while.
