    Extending AppleCare+ coverage

    Hello all, the AppleCare+ coverage on my 2017 12” MacBook expires next year, but I’ve been reading that it is possible to extend it on a monthly basis beyond the 3 year term. Is this option available for the 12” MacBook? Has anyone had any experience with this extension? Extend AppleCare coverage

    Next Macs placeholders are right in front of us 2022-2023

    So, I believe the next Macs placeholders are already in the lineup right in front of our faces. #1 - the M1 MacBook Air at $999 is the placeholder for an M2 12-inch (12.2-12.4”) MacBook Air.

    MacBook 12 appreciation thread

    Dunno if there's a similar thread already, but I personally want to give a damn appreciation to this marvel of engineering. Yes, lots of people said this is "Just a Facebook machine", "Underpowered as f**k", yadda yadda. I digress. My own MacBook has been said otherwise. It's a beautiful rose...

    Hi, I'm really hoping someone here can advise me. My main computer is my 12" MacBook (I believe 2015) which has been nearing the end of its life for some time now, but I've managed to keep it limping along. But suddenly tonight when I try to log in, nothing happens when I type, even though...

    MacBook Air (mid-2012) to 12" MacBook (2017) = upgrade?

    I have a mid-2012 1.8ghz i5 MacBook Air with 128gb storage. I use it lightly for web browsing and emails. The £800 m3 MacBook deal in the UK has me tempted for the screen upgrade alone (plus battery and 256gb storage). However, will I see any overall speed/performance upgrade? Has anyone else...

It's been 17 months since it was last updated.. 17 months with the same pricing.. it seems so wrong to buy it new today but it's the only option I'm left with besides finding one 2nd hand.

    Should Apple be held accountable for 'wear and tear' on battery following USB-C cable recall?

    Hi All, So my question is as follows. Should Apple be held accountable for unnecessary 'wear and tear' on a battery following USB-C cable recalls on units shipped in 2015? This thought comes from my recent interactions with Apple following the repair of a rMB keyboard without an extended...
