Should I buy a new Macbook?

Recommended Posts

You may be able to save a couple of hundred bucks if you can get to a last-generation Macbook at your local Apple store, but I'd personally call that false economics, The upgraded screen and graphics card are worth the $200 extra. And if the new trackpad works as well as the screen on the iPhone/iPod touch, it's worth the price of admission on its own.




I confess. I\'m an audiophool.

If you plan on using your MacBook as a laptop (i.e. picking it up off your desk and traveling with it) definitely get the new one. My 1st gen white MacBook has served me well, but its one weakness is its compliance. If you pick it up with a disk in the drive, you can hear it rub as the case flexes. The new ones are super stiff and that .5 lb drop is noticeable.
