Buying a refurbished Mac book. Yes or no?

I have always had Mac's. I have a desktop and am now finding that I need a laptop. Refurbished is okay. I will be using it for research and the writing of a book. I also will need Microsoft office for presentations, etc. What is best for me? Macbook Pro or MAcbook Air?

  • If it is your first one, then yes. I would bring it into the apple store to make sure it works fine.

  • I have similar needs and have been buying, using and tweaking with macs since the 90's. I have always purchased refurbished models when one is available that fits my needs. I also am a medical student, so I use my MacBook Air about 16 hours a day for studying, writing, etc. (although I avoid PowerPoint at all costs; Keynote '09 is way better IMHO). The speed and performance are fine, but the real benefit is how lightweight the machine is since I carry it everywhere. Anyway, just my two cents.
