Just want something fairly basic. Thinking about making the switch to mac but still not 100% sure that I want to dish out $2k on a laptop I don't know how to use just yet..

Please pm me or post here if you have one for sale. I'm in Melbourne

I have to agree with this! I've switched to mac about 3 years ago and things have been different ever since! Hate Windows... I am really used to the Mac OS. My first mac was the 1st gen iMac 20-inch. Looks good and works just like it looks!

Took me an hour as well, then things worked out flawlessly. It's worth the investment as I haven't done any repairs on it in 3 years. That said, I use to send my pc for repair every month!

Thanks for the replies guys. The last time I used a mac was at the RMIT (Uni) library about 2 years ago, played around with it for about 10 minutes and thought it was shit so I haven't used one since lol

Thanks for the link andy!

There's a laptop place in the city on Elizebeth St near the JB. They usually have a few very basic Macbooks for ~$400-$500.

are they macbooks, or ibooks?

get an intel one, as you can then install windows on it if you hate macOS :D

I just pulled apart a core2duo 2ghz macbook to make my carPC out of >.<

Oh yeah I know that place. Cheers Rich, I'll drop past on the weekend to see what they've got to offer

Whats the difference between a macbook & ibook?

Anyway, I dropped by an apple store today and they got me a price of $1499 for a 13" macbook with 3 years warranty. Good deal?

Really shop around for the student discount. my sister just got the new macbook pro 15" and got a great deal on it, with a microsoft word,powerpoint etc package, apple care, free mouse that comes with word and some other shit. we found out that some mac resellers wont really give you a student discount at all.

I made the switch to MacBook for my laptop a few years ago and haven't looked back. For what I use my Laptop for it's absolutely perfect and it's given me 0 headaches.

I still run a Windows desktop PC though so have the best of both worlds. Mac's can run Windows too if you're really that fussed but for the most part the Mac OS does just about everything Windows can do. It takes a little bit of getting used to Mac's layout but once you figure the little things out you'll find it just as easy to use as anything else.
