hi guys, im intending to buy a new macbook air 13. this will be the first mac that i have ever purchase, therefore i would like to clear some doubts. 1) is buying the apple care necessary? or is the mac products able to last for 3-5 years with proper handling. 2) i will be getting the 13inch i5 128gb model, and would like to have some advice as to what is the most optimal way to partition my hard disk size so that i can run both mac and windows. (p.s, never use a mac before, so therefore, no idea how much space would a typical mac storage require. however, in windows, i will be doing some developing work eg: visual studio, photoshop, ms office, etc etc. your answer to my question would be much appreciated. thanks !
