Thinking about a used MacBook
I have been looking into a smallish laptop computer for my daughter to tinker around on, and something that I can play with as well. I don't want to break the bank and spring for a new MacBook, and really the only criteria it needs to fill is to play Flash games like Webkinz and Facebook apps as well as general web browsing.
So far I have seen decent prices on the 2006 - 2008 MacBooks but I am wondering if these are good enough to run Flash games. The only OS X experience I have is on a quad-core i5 system, so I'm trying to get a feel for how the stock MacBooks with Core 2 chips (2 Ghz or so). That seems likeplenty, but knowing there are lots of Mac people around here I was hoping for some real world input.
Part of the reason the MacBook appeals to me is simply the magnetic power cord. I have seen too many devices go flying around here to want another cheap laptop / netbook.
