Compare the computer specs here:

CPU User Benchmark Comparison

I love this site, I'll be building a new computer soon and I know exactly what I'm getting for it thanks to this. Change your country to USA or whatever at the top.

you might as well send apple that check and then dump that piece of shit in the trash after you get it

pretty much that logo costing you 900 bucks, the computer parts worth 100

battery is probably gone on it if it hasn't been replaced.


Don't listen to these people yammering about specs.. Comparing PC specs to Mac specs is apples to oranges. Windows 10 tends to be more power hungry.

but in general buying a 5 year old laptop is not smart. Especially for 1k. You can find a better deal.

I think the Macbook/Air/Pro/ etc are nice but I only use my laptop for browsing and typing homework. It'll make no sense to spend that much unless however I have that kind of budget. IOS makes me want the laptop even more.

1,000 for a five year old second hand laptop? Never in my lifetime.

Is this a better deal?
I'm just not sure about the processor.
I7 as a quad core >>>> i5 as a dual core?

What are you using it for? If you are using for just for web browsing and office productivity, you can just spend $600-800 on a Windows laptop. $1,400 is way too much.

Unless you are one of those people that likes to waste money and show off the glowing Apple logo.
