It is time my child had her own computer. I've decided, pending discussion here, not to upgrade one of my older beige machines for her, nor to purchase a brand new Mac. I'm going to get her a late-model used or a refurbished computer.

I've done some research and narrowed it down to SmallDogs or PowerMax. Is there anywhere else I should look? Are there any known problems with either of these that I should be aware of? Any other companies that can rival these for a quality used or refurbished Mac?
