Thread: Macbook Reliability?
08-27-2006, 10:36 PM #1new_e46GuestMacbook Reliability?
I am thinking of purchasing a Macbook, how is the reliablity of Macbook? I have never own a Mac before so this will be my first purchase.
I read that some people suggest buying Applecare. Is it worth the money?

All Macs are reliable. Still, just like any complex piece of electronics, things can happen. AppleCare is a smart thing to have for such a high priced investment like a notebook computer.__________________________________________________

Considering the MacBook was released in May, there's not much data to go on for the MacBook specifically. I've had my white MacBook 2.0 since June, and it's been flawless. I've had a 12" iBook since January of 2005 and it's been extremely reliable.
In general, Apple products have been considered pretty reliable. If you check issues of Consumer Reports, you'll see satisfaction with Apple products is generally among the highest.
Hope this helps.
