Right guys the time has come, been waiting weeks since my Vaio was stolen in a burglary in Jan, wnated to change to mac but waited and waited for the new MBP, finally there here, but now im a bit stuck on where to buy from. Im buying it mainly to edit video for my job, so contacted a nearby video soloution centre who are also mac repair shop. They have offered my £50 off the MBP and FCP2 for £699.99, however they are unable to give me a shiopping date as they dont yet have stock. However i may be looking to purchase a HD video camera from them in the future and will get great after sales advice and cosultation they tell me. Not to mention the fact there a repair centre if i have probs. However Basically i work for a company in the UK and if i go to an apple store i can get 8% off. which is a good discount on a MBP of £1600 pounds! The apple store tell me they have stock now!! So heres my dilemma, do i got for the higher discount from the mac store and get the MBP tomorrow, or buy from the solution expert/repair centre, get less discount and have to wait maybe up to another week for my MBP, but get the better advice/consultation after and also maybe another discount down the line if and wheni purchase a camera...... any thoughts appreciated, im sure Macs after care is good too, but just not sure which is best. anyone got any experience?! My second question is probably a popular one and there is prob already a thread on it.. but this will be my first mac, is there anything i should do when i get it before i use it and when i first use it to help look after it, ie does the battery need fully charging before i turn it on, what should i load onto it utility wise to look after it etc etc. I undestand that setting up a user account away from the admin account is a good idea so know about that but any other tips appreciated. Cheers fellas!!!!!!!!
