    Default Where to buy

    Hi I am just wondering where in Australia I can buy a quality used MacBook? Under $500? I am starting a course that requires a computer but I don't know where to go. Thank you

    There'd be lots of options out there - a macbook is something near the bottom of the list of possible options IMHO (unless of course there was some program involved with your studies that absolutely required macos)

    This would be part of the reason why I say that ->

    Depends upon your needs.
    a) Do you really need a bit of "fruit" (i.e. Apple)
    b) What does your course actually specify?

    You could look at various auction houses in your locality which often have "ex-govt" devices for waaaaaaay less than retail.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    Salvo (Salvation Army) Stores and Cash Convertors are a very good source of used Mac (and other brand) notebooks etc.

    They might be a little grubby/shop-soiled but clean up very well.

    Macs are excellent, so don't be out off by some of the derogatory replies you get.
