Not voted hot or cold. Bit too pricey for 6 year old machine but good with the warranty and thumbs up for the green credentials. I have the 2 ghz model from 2006 and the battery still lasts 2 hours (never replaced) and it's fine for Word, Matlab etc.

Stay clear of this company. Read their review before committing yourself to buying anything from them

Really? I've used Misco for years and have never been anything less than impressed TBH.

I don't need to read reviews about Misco; have purchased from them often during the last 10-15 years and whilst everything isn't always peachy they're still worth buying from - just like dabs, ebuyer, aria et al.

Granted they're usually more expensive on most items of late.

I though aizee meant Greenline brand, Apart from the 12 month warranty that blurb of theirs is mighty empty.

I have to say, I put an SSD in my 2009 white Macbook and it's just as fast as my powerful modern desktop.

Definitely consider buying an older Mac and installing an SSD if you're after the Mac experience for cheap.

Or buy another laptop and make a hackintosh for less than half the price with the same specifications or better.

Sorry but over £300 for this is taking the proverbial. I completely agree about upgrading an existing one with an SSD makes a big difference but paying this much for one that is 5 years old is a little to much.

I somewhat agree, although with these cheap or old laptops (ones that cost from £150 to £400), better specs don't make any real world difference.
When you're buying a laptop for cheap, you aren't exactly expecting it to render a 4K video. So as long as the laptop runs and can do basic everyday functions, such like checking facebook or your email, a slightly high clock speed or an extra 20GB of HDD space isn't going to make any difference, even if on paper it's better... If that make sense?

Yeah Macs are more expensive, but there's a reason. The build quality, trackpad, keyboard, display and all the rest of it are superb, the thing never breaks and very rarely crashes, doesn't get viruses etc... The OS isn't the only thing people want when buying a Mac.

For the basic functions you describe a Chromebook makes more sense than a six year old MacBook...

Chromebooks are great, but you don't get that Mac experience I described previously - better build quality, OSX and all the rest of it.

The build quality is probably not as good as a brand new macbook so for this price I would rather get a new laptop. Not a 6 year old laptop that you'll have to buy an ssd for

This is a terrible deal- you could get a decent core 2 duo macbook pro for around £200 on ebay, stick a 250gb SSD in there and it would be much better than this, with higher RAM capability, better graphics and able to install Mavericks and Windows 7 and still actually work. Although they're still nice machines to work on, the white macbooks have so many design flaws (topcase prone to cracking and staining, poor battery life, scratch magnet exterior) that I'd recommend against buying one at this price. If you really wanted a white macbook it would cost around £120 from ebay for a fully working model, but less if you get one without a HDD and put in an SSD yourself (really easy to do on this model).
