I prefer to get new tools with a guarantee if possible. But anyway, it depends on you, if it's a good Mac with good quality performance, then I would say that you can take a used one. Especially if you don't have a lot of money to buy a new MacBook. But if I were you, I'd take a closer look at options from other companies thecursedcrusade.com. You can find a better-performing laptop that will suit your price point to get it new. And besides, if portability isn't the most important thing to you, opt for a pc.
