Hi there, I'm a new media art student that's been proudly running with my 15" Macbook Pro since I got it in 2010 at the start of University. It runs Snow Leopard, has 8GB of RAM, an Anti-Glare screen and was ordered with pretty much the top specs I could select at the time on Apple's site. I use it for creating 2D & 3D graphics, programming interactive applications, playing and making games, and video media production and animation. It's my first Apple machine and I love it... But my AppleCare expires in a few months and, of course, there's no way to renew it. One of the best things about AppleCare is that it provided an easy and free fix for me in a bind at my local Apple store. This is a huge problem for me because I'm going into my final thesis year, during which I plan to make a video game for my thesis, and I'm terrified my Macbook is going to die on me at the worst possible moment. Because I can't renew AppleCare, which has helped me in many binds in the past, I turn to you, Mac community, to ask what do you recommend getting done to the computer for AppleCare to cover before it expires? Should/Can I upgrade certain components? Get certain parts replaced? How can I best exploit AppleCare so that my Macbook Pro runs better or is less likely to breakdown before it ends?
