Should I Buy A Used Mac Computer?

Should I Buy A Used Mac Computer?

Postby geoffrey67 » Wed Nov 10, 2010 1:19 pm

I have a few hundred dollars and want to buy a Mac. (In a few months when I'll have more money.) I'm only 16 years old and I don't have a job, so in my mind buying a brand new $1200+ computer isn't very realistic. I'm wondering if buying a 24 inch 2008 iMac (possibly used/refurbished because stores won't sell new ones) for $700 or how ever much someone would sell it for would be a good idea. I would eventually buy the wireless keyboard and Magic mouse, as well as OS X Snow Leopard to make it as up to date as possible. Someone on my friend's site that I watch apparently has a 2008 iMac (24') and it looks really nice. So, would it be fine to try to save some money but still buy a Mac or should I just wait forever and a day until I have enough money for a computer that costs as much as a car? P.S. I've never had a Mac and I'm getting sick of Windows. Thus the reason for buying a Mac.
Also, I don't game on my current computer. I stick to consoles. Another reason I want a Mac is for better video editing on iMovie, as well as Hevetica font, as silly as that sounds.

I like your idea for buying the refurbished one, but you must choose carefully which store you plan to purchase from.

Refurbished notebook usually requires a lot of test to ensure they are in good condition for selling. You can visit

to find the special deal from Apple with official warranty. If it can save your few hundred bucks and work well, why not go for refurbished? =)

You never want to buy a used computer...it's one of those things you must have new.
