  • Cheapest of the Mac laptops

    Mar 26, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheapest Mac laptop and totally sufficent.
    Cons: Too expensive vs. what you can get in a pc and screen is too small.

    Summary: This machine is quite nice and now that it is a little "old", it's much cheaper on the after-market.I won't compare the vitures of PC to Mac, but I will compare the features.  You have a paltry 2 USB slots that are so close together that is ... read more

    Summary: READ TO THE END OF THIS REVIEW FOR IMPORTANT UPDATE - this computer WOULD be a 5-star item if not for Apple's shady practices re: phone support. If you love your ipod then you will love this laptop! I spent years and years using nothing but PC's. ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice on the outside, will do day-to day tasks reliably.
