I've been recently looking to buy a macbook pro but I've been unable to get past this dilemma so far. As much I love the stunning display that the retina model has to offer, its price(ouch) and the fact that it is not user upgrade-able/serviceable make me feel that it is not worth its while. What I'm looking at is an around 2k dollar computer, which due to the fact that everything is soldered together will be more or less obsolete in 2-3 years. By buying a cMbp or most windows laptops this can be kinda alleviated by replacing hdd/sdd/ram. For such an already overpriced product(albeit a very good product ), I'd definitely not be willing to shell out the extra money to buy apple care. After the 1 year warranty expires, should some fault occur(hdd/ram etc.), I not be able to replace said part myself, and the repair costs as far as I've seen are not something to scoff at(700~$ iirc). So, I'd like to hear some of your opinions. Do you feel "making a leap of faith" towards the rMbp is "worth it"?
