Install 4 gig of ram before even playing around with it and DEFIANTLY upgrade the OS to 10.6 or better.

After reading all the negative reviews I took a shot in the dark anyway. It arrived in the original box and mine had been inspected with a sheet inside stating everything they checked. I popped in 4g of ram before I even fired it up. The outside has a...

The only cons is I wish I would have ordered 2 more

Apple Macbook


Physically it was in good shape

I bought this Macbook for my small business and when it arrived I tried charging it but it wouldn't charge. I had to borrow a friends charger to test if it was the charger or the macbook that had an issue, turns out to be the charger. Once it's charged...

Refurbished Macbook


Macbook in very good condition. Fully functional ; Came with 2GB memory, not 1GB as advertised, so I won't have to upgrade that right away

Most refurbished items are more current models. This is a quite old 2008 model with updated OS ; No OS disks or restore disks, and no restore utility allowing creation of a restore disk. Buying a OWC external drive (500GB) and creating a backup image...

MacBook is a MacBook - Very Dirty and Scratched up though


Overall I'm ok with this purchase, as it was very cheap for what it is. I'm happy I had it shipped to myself before sending it to my niece for Christmas, as she would have been let down by how poor the cosmetic condition was. As it came out of the...

The laptop runs as expected for an older model. Everything pictured in the images here is what I received. Fast Shipment and processing ; The interior portions of the laptop (screen and keyboard area) were very clean and barely used

I knew these were used macs, but i figured "recertified" meant they were at least cleaned up a bit. The one i received had tons of scratches on the outside cover. there were some dark ones that looked deep as well. little parts looked cracked or...

Apple MacBook MB402LL/A Notebook Intel Core 2 Duo 2.10GHz 13.3" 1GB Memory DDR2 667 120GB HDD 5400rpm DVD/CD-RW Combo Intel GMA X3100


Laptop is in excellent shape, shipped quickly

Arrived with a functional but heat-damaged magsafe connector, connector gets very hot during use. Will repair connector myself and keep as a spare power supply, so more an annoyance than a real problem for me

Had to send it back. Hoping the replacement is actually recertified and in excellent working condition. I get to wait another at least 10 days to find out, however.

It was shipped

DOA. Battery eject/lock was broken. Was this actually recertified

Apple or IBM


I like quick start good multimedia future, more stable then windows, but after have MAC about 1 year, I back to Windows. The reason - Apple overprice MAC & Software not always available.

Quality design, portable, good battery life, quick start, well run with multimedia and video cast

No right mouse click which annoying, sometimes freezing like windows, click to open application take time but if you not pation and click again it will close. Software expensive. More difficult to configure network stuff

Great Laptop


I purchased this as a refurb from Apple, and it is like new condition, and I upgraded the RAM to 4gbs...its not that hard at all to do.

I love this computer, from the time I turned it on, to as I'm typing this review, its nice and fast. It boots up in like 30 seconds, its amazing. The battery life is fantastic, as I can squeeze about 5 hours on a single charge, with wifi on. This is my...

None really, perhaps a dvd recorder on the low end? doesn't really bother me, as this laptop isn't my only computer.
