Looking for a new Apple computer? This may be the perfect time to spend that not-yet-received tax refund. Apple has loaded up their "Discount Store" (aka refurbished store) with iBooks, MacBooks, MacBook Pros, Mac Pros, iMacs, Power Macs, Mac Minis, displays and accessories. I've been wanting my first Mac for a long time now, and I'm itching at my wallet at this very moment.

DISCUSSION

All my Macs are used off of eBay. It's much cheaper than a refurb but comes with more of the danger of DOA. However as long as the seller is trust worthy and the description is detailed enough you can get some cheap Macs. My Dual 2ghz G5 tower cost $1400 off of ebay two years ago. Though I spent about two weeks checking ebay for an hour after work and even more on the weekend. (I actually one the thing during work hours.) Anyway it's been great and the keyboard and mouse were still in their original packaging. I also got a 20gb ipod 2nd Gen for $95 in early 2004 and my current 60gb Video for $180 in June.

Anyway if you choose eBay beware of jerks and low user ratings. Not to mention Engrish. "You IpøDd apLE MnaKintosj buy Supper FÅst N∑W!¡ Cheep' Cheep¿" Do not send that money order to the Bank of China!
