    I just purchased one refurbished for $400, received it today and updated to Yosemite. It was such an enjoyable experience especially considering my recent switch from an Android (Note 4) to the 6+. I have always wanted to use an Apple computer but could never justify the price of a new one. After only a few hours of use I decided that the only thing I'll be using my Windows laptop for is gaming. I can't believe it took me so long but I'm glad I made the switch!

    You'll get over that feeling and wonder why you did switch sooner.

    Not a bad price! Us computer dorks who sit on forums all day chatting hardware sometimes forget that even hardware that is several years old is more than sufficient for powering every day tasks that a typical user might want.

    And I really miss the plain MacBooks. I loved the black ones.

    Yeah I looked for a black one but ended up with a white one. I like the look better than the aluminum one by far.

    I got it from macofalltrades.com they ship next day if you use PayPal and a verified address. Ships from Florida and got here to me (in Maryland) pretty quickly.

    I got mine 5 years ago, new. I too found it fantastic and wondered why it had taken me so long to make the switch.
    Now I am wondering if I should make the switch to a MacBook air. Perhaps I will when they have retina.
    I hope you get as much enjoyment with your MacBook as I have had with mine.

    Sweet! I just ordered my second ever Mac late this afternoon. It's a 2009 MacBook updated to Mavericks and has MS Office installed. It's going to be my new work computer as I just got a copy editing job that starts freelance for two months and requires me to bring my own machine to work from. eBay has some really nice looking MacBooks for insanely cheap prices - I paid only $188 for mine!
