    Best Macbook under about $500?
    Hello. I am interested in purchasing my first Macbook. I would like to post a WTB listing (either a MB, MBA, or MBP) but I don't know exactly what to ask.
    I am hoping to use it for a couple months or a year, until I decide to buy a new one from Apple.

    I don't have many requirements other than under about ~$500 give or take a little. Although, compatibility with Lion and possibly a glass-trackpad would be amazing.

    At least 2GB RAM and 160GB HD or more would be great!

    What do you guys suggest for a moderately cheap Macbook? Should I look on eBay, or post a WTB on the forum?

    How do you suggest becoming that? Posting more help? Or just posting more?

    Also, do you think I would be able to get a decent deal on eBay, or would you suggest becoming more established here?
