Should I get a refurb mid range MacBook and 2.0GHz mini, or should i get just a Black MacBook? If you have other suggestions tell me. right now i have a windows laptop that i usually use at my desk but i enjoy using it while watching tv and in bed. i have a keyboard mouse and 22" LCD so i wouldnt need to buy that stuff. Im leaning towards mini and macbook combo but if you can convince me otherwise im open to it.

im thinking of getting just a refurb 2.0ghz mini because i just upped my windows laptop ram from 1gb to 2gb and i would use that for mobile computing and then possibly get a mac laptop sometime in the near future.

The macbook is more expensive, but it can double as a desktop and a laptop, as you can run it with an external monitor, keyboard and mouse. I used my PowerBook G4 that way for almost a year until I bought my mini. But if you're happy with your PC laptop, the mini would be cheaper and give you close to the performance of the macbook
