For Christmas, consider refurbished or used Apple products

From 2006 to 2011, the MacBook was Apple's consumer laptop. It was the successor to the iBook. Its design has evolved over the years: first in polycarbonate, then "aluminum unibody" in 2008-2009, and "white unibody" (2009-2011). After a four-year hiatus, the MacBook range will reappear in 2015 in a "Retina" version until 2019. The second-hand MacBook Retina is very popular.
