There are better options in the market but if you need a cheap and quick solution you can get one of these pretty cheap. You get what you paid for which means you're not getting the fastest computer around. Upgradable to the latest mac os so far (mountain lion) for pretty cheap. Track pad is big and it actually has buttons, which i like, keyboard seems a little flimsy, like it can break easily. The edge can really hurt your wrist on a flat surface when typing, you need to use a tilted surface, I use a coolmaster fan for that and it helps a lot. Battery life is pretty good, they last a long time, on charge and on life, the coin lock or whatever is called breaks easily. I have read about issues with the headset jack, it gets stuck somehow and it does not produce sound from the speakers but if you plug speakers or a headset you will get sound, it seems a common occurrence with this model. It only comes with two usb ports so be sure to get a small hub if you use them a lot. Also lacks VGA output which i think is stupid because its very widely used, i understand no hdmi because its from 2009 but a VGA port would've been nice. Memory can be expanded to 6GB even when the specs says its expandable up to 4GB.

i've always heard about mac's and wanted to see what they were all about. i love these powerful small computers. i am enjoying learning how to use it to their potential. i had a 1 yr old top of the line hp which i am giving away. even though this mac is 4 yrs. old it has everything in it that i need and a lot more. this macbook does not come with a superdrive, but i am not bothered by that. for a few dollars you can purchase a usb card reader.

Great produce at a great price! This is my first Apple computer purchase and I am so glad I did it. i bought used to give Apple a chance and have not been let down. Only $330 from "surpluscompsales" whichi included office 2011, iwork 09, and ilife 09.
I highly recommend buying Apple used and plan to do so again for my wife's computer.
Also, I did a lot of research and shopping around and found that "surpluscompsales" had the best deals of any seller.

I bought this laptop to compliment my iPhone and iPad. This was my first Apple computer/laptop and I was really impressed with the customization of pre-loaded software, truly a great value for the price. Compared to my Windows laptop, it boots up much more quickly. There is a bit of a learning curve though if you are new to Apple, it's a bit of a transition from Windows as some of the short cut commands are different as well as navigation and using the Apple mouse (no right click, which I find myself constantly doing). The more I use it, the more I find myself adapting and really liking it. All in all I am really happy with my purchase.
