    What macbook should I buy ?
    Alright guys what macbook should I buy ? I have about $1500 to spend and i want to get a good macbook or macbook pro that will last about 5 years. I usually take care of my laptops so that shouldn't be a problem.

    I want to know what you guys would you if you had $1500 to spend on a computer.

    I need to make my decision by the 29th of june so that i can go ahead and purchase it so i have it time for school.

    Thanks for any information that you may contribute.

    I would pick up a refurb 15in MBP
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Just so that we are clear on your computer purchasing goals...what happened to the extreme excitement you had to purchase a brand new 1.67ghz Powerbook G4 for $800?

    I think that your decision to purchase a new MacBook or MacBook Pro is a much better choice.

    No real reason to buy a new Apple computer from Craig's List...since why would someone sell a brand new computer for less than they paid for it from the Apple Store...unless it was a "shady deal".
