To answer this question we need a lot more information of what you want to use the NB for and if you have any specific programs that you need to run.

The latest Apple NB Products are effectively running Linux and this may be a deciding factor.

Well you lost me there you are describing hardware specs rather than software requirements, with the current generation of NB any should exceed your stated requirements by a great degree. Currently the smallest NB HDD is 40 GIG and only the most basic system would have only 256 MEG of RAM.

If you are looking at second hand units well its almost anything goes as depending on how old you want to go you could be looking at almost any hardware configuration.

If you are working in an office environment you probably want what other people you work with have that way you can share infomation and files easily.
If it is for internet surfing and emails I would go with windows since they are cheaper.
If you plan on doing video,[imovie] music recording[garageband] using photo software like photoshop I would go with a mac.
If you think you need help and training, mac tech support is harder to find...because there isnt as many people doing it cuz they dont have as many problems.
If you dont care about any of those things and money is no problem get a mac!
