Cheap Apple Laptops good for Basic use

Finding the right laptop for under 300 should involve looking at several models so that you can do the proper comparisons necessary. These will include some new yet a lot of refurbished laptops as well, but many will have some impressive specifications already in them. When you really only need to do the basics on your laptop then there are going to be even more options within this price range. For instance when you need to connect to the WiFi where you are and check your email then this is considered to be basic even on these cheap laptops. As for office productivity and document creation just about any used Apple laptop will have the ability to run these types of applications. The one thing that you don’t want to have to deal with is a laptop which freezes when you are working on it since this is ultimately very frustrating. The nice thing about a 300 dollar hackintosh laptop is that they are well known to have comparatively few of these kinds of situations when you use them, even for long periods of time.

Nice Refurbished MacBook

Some of the older used apple laptops for $300 are a good choice and while the 13.2 inch screen is not quite as big as a standard PC screen, it is not too bad by comparison for surfing the web or even watching movie files on. These MacBooks have 2.0GHz processors and 3MB of L2 cache which is plenty of processing power to do the basics on and even more multimedia applications as well.

Most will be able to have a maximum of 4GB of DDR2 installed. This is definitely not the latest in memory technology but for a used Apple laptop it is an impressive amount nonetheless. The ones which we most commonly see will have loads of software already installed on them too. This includes examples such as QuickTime, Time Machine, Photo Booth, Safari and the ability to enjoy playing DVDs on also.
