Hi, thanks for using JustAnswer.com I am Cris.
My recommendation would be to purchase a Macbook. They are more reliable, dependable and have usually longer life span then a Windows PC. Mac's are not 100% prone to viruses but they are rarely unlikely to get one like Windows. They need less maintenance and up keep unlike Windows to continue to run smooth. I have a Macbook for about 4 years now and it runs just like the first day I got very fast and smooth.
Also yes, buying a use Mac is worth even though Mac's have come down in price. They are still little more pricey then a Windows computer, eBay is also a good place to purchase new or used Macbooks.
