Hi! I can buy a Macbook from a friend of mine. However, the macbook is a french version! Software manuals etc are all french. All I want to know is, if I purchase mac os x (english version) will I be able to use the macbook as a regular macbook? I would be ssaving a bundle from buying a brand new one.

If I am reading this article correctly, you may not even have to change the OS:

I would suggest you borrow your friend's iBook, change the language preference to English and see if that works satisfactorily.
