    the hell with apples I was at bestbuy yesterday and some of the very basic apples were 1400 bucks. I ended up buying a decent lap top for browsing and web use that completely out performed the mac for 400 bucks.

    it's not gonna outperform the mac, but it's definitely plausible that a $400 machine is all you need. It's really all I need, but I want a larger LED screen and decent non-plastic hardware.

    Good SSDs cost a lot of money. They might be writing off part of the cost on the new units, but not on the refurbs. :dunno:

    LOL no.

    I'm sure it's a better bang for the buck if all you're doing is surfing...but it's not going to out perform a Mac at that price.
