new to apple- how to get into mac computing on the cheap
i'm new to the apple game, have had a pc for years, android phones etc. Just got an IP6s.
not sure i'm going to fully convert over to apple, so what's the best (i.e. cheapest) way to get a macbook?
i'm just looking for basic computing stuff, music, internet/email, maybe some work using MS office suite. I am looking at used equipment before i invest in new. I am not a power user of any sort.
i've seen some macbooks of different ages on cowboom and craigslist, 2011 seems to be the newest under $500.
my question is for the used macbooks, what can i expect for around $500? just some general basics like: a 2011 macbook, or a 2010 macbook pro/air would be your best bet. also where's some good places to look/buy, those kinds of recommendations.
