My husband would like to buy our daughter a laptop as a graduation gift. Now my question is, can someone advise us in how good any of these are price wise and the RAM , HARD DRIVE SIZE, SPEED, MEMORY. We never purchased a Mac before and she's been wanting one.http://www.apple.com/shop/product/FJVM2LL/A/refurbished-116-inch-macbook-air-16ghz-dual-core-intel-core-i5 http://www.apple.com/shop/product/FJVE2LL/A/refurbished-133-inch-macbook-air-16ghz-dual-core-intel-core-i5

I looked at it....what does she want to use it for?   It's has 4GB which is great for many things but it sure doesn't give you much info about the laptop....

sorry I am late to the game here.

I have gotten Macs from here: macofalltrades.com , they do only macs

These laptops are still a bit pricey but less than apple site and they are refurbs but in great condition.

http://www.macofalltrades.com/Refurbished-Used-Apple-Laptops-s/5.htm

I prefer desktops since many of those older models can be upgraded to a better system than what they come with, some of the laptops are stuck with the one they come installed with.

Take a look at what they have to offer -- they have larger screens than the one you linked to for less loot. Take a look at the specs of all they have before you decide.

I forgot too the advantage of a desktop, when a laptop is not  really needed, is that they are easier to get into, upgrade ram, hard drives and clean with canned air.

Some of those macbook pro's come with bigger hard drives than the one at apple.
Fear not,
You are never alone,
I am there to comfort and guide you...
Always.

I will pass this message to my husband. iolana already has a desktop, and my husband wants to get her a laptop, so desktop is out of the question. Thanks Mary  :mwah:
