You should get a refurbished or used macbook pro! It's quite cheap! 1,000$ .. I think you should probably get the 13 or 15 inch since you are going to take it to school... I have the 17 inch and I think it's too big for that...

I'd say, you might want to get a 2011 Ref. MacBook Pro from the Apple store. About a 13-15 IN. For word processing, and Youtube, you don't need power. Any MacBook could handle that. For gaming, like the flight X. You may need a bit more power, but still I believe a 2011 could do just fine.

Great deal for Back to School or Gamers.

This laptop was bought for $2400. Basically It was bought from Apple with their higher configuration (faster processor, more hard drive capacity (320GB), and two video cards.The hard drive capacity for instance on it, is higher than what it comes with the current MacBook Pros!

Hence, this top of the line 15-inch MacBook Pro (late 2008) is listed for sale for $900 or BEST OFFER.

Condition: very good. Never been opened, modified or fixed. Well kept and taken care of, hardly any scratch on it. Comes with its box even.
