    New Here ~ Switching
    Hiya all im new here. I am switching to a macbook soon


    *2.16GHZ Core 2 Dup

    *1 GB Ram

    *120 GB Hardrive

    *Dual Layer Superdrive

    I was just wandering what i should know? Must know facts? Things to help me get started etc..

    Also is it worth buying the apple care for 200!!! i can't afford it! Should i realy get it or what, i mean the macbook is already 830.


    Thanks,

    Hi, I am in the same position buying my new MB as soon as leopard comes out!! I'm passing on apple care and just gonna be really carefull with my MB!! Yeah i agree with you: the MB is £830 allready so another £200 is quite alot. Btw why are you purchasing: are you just going into your GCSE years/ Uni/ College???

    Oh righte i'm just going into year 10. It's up to you but do you really need one yet?? Bi the time you realy need it (GCSE's) they would have been upgraded so much which is why i put it off buying one until then...

    Yes i did aswell but i put off buying one becuz:
    1) i wanted to save up and pay all at once so i didnt have to pay monthly and 3years ive saved £1700 so ive got plenty now to buy a MB!!!
    2) Wasn't neede in the early years of secendry school
    3) I knew they wuld b upgraded they recently have to duble core!!

    So yeah but if you want one tht badly then get one!!
    But yh on topic i wukdnt bother with apple protection wen uve spent so much on a laptop u shuld b carefull with it neway so nuffing shuld go rong!!

    Could u guyz plz stop tlkin lik this? I can't understand what you're saying.

    To answer the original question, I don't really understand what you're asking. Uh. I wouldn't bother with AppleCare. It would help to know what you're using it for.

    If you're going to be doing email, web, word processing and stuff like that then just go ahead and buy it.

    If you're going to be using it for more demanding stuff like video editing, some games, Photoshop etc. then you should buy it and get some RAM from Crucial. It's way way way cheaper than Apple's RAM and is just as good. Also upgrading is easy because Apple have cool ways of getting into the RAM without taking the case apart, but that'll be explained in the booklet that comes with your MacBook.

    JackTheMac....

    Lifes too short ... go get a mac, enjoy the experience of using it every day and I doubt you'll regret it.
    As for the Apple care... you have 1 year to decide... You get the standard 1 year warranty with your machine - as the end of that year approaches, weigh up the pros and cons of purchasing applecare and take it out if necessary at the end of your standard warranty period.

    go get one.. go have fun.

    I'm pretty sure you can purchase AppleCare within one year of buying the laptop so you can wait and save up for it. I always get it but that's just me.
