I not an Apple fanboy but I want to buy a used macbook for the purpose of loading Linux on it. Anyone out there, more familiar with apple products than me, have any advice on what model of macbook I should pursue?

I am working my way through 'The C Programming Language' and I am beginning to realize this this langauge may have been written for my brain.

I know there are a lot of haters, but is very readable and clear with its purpose and I really like that.

I'm printing parts for a Rostock Delta printer and I've had to stop and admire how well these parts are designed. Boolean nut recesses so there's no need for nuts. Notice the tear drop hole for the Nema17 motor shaft so that if printed like this, there's no need for support. Instead of holes for attaching the motor there are 45 degree angled slots, once again negating the need for support, and accomodating variations in hole patterns. So well done!
