I've never heard of any 2 year old Lenovo (Or any PC that had decent specs. at start) that sells for $200.
Yes, used Macs are usually worth more than used PCs, but you're forgetting that the new Macs are also proportionally more expensive.
And in case you didn't heard me the first time, Lenovos are 100% built better than Macs, there's no competition. That and the fact that as a STUDENT, you're trying to get the best bang for the buck, with most compatibility and reliability using school required software and homework. There's no place for a Mac in such an environment.
While it may be true that Macs may provide better high end software than PC, Colleges never require anything close to that level, student's will never need that many options, and most Mac users who buy it for the supposedly "better software" never progress beyond adding a simple transition in a video clip.
