I recently graduated from high school. I'll be entering college this fall and I've had my eye on the MBP mid-15" since my birthday last August and ESPECIALLY since the spring update. As a combined graduation/birthday present I've been offered the MBP from my mom and I'm having a hard time deciding if I should get it. The standing in the buyer's guide is Neutral...which is exactly what I was thinking. I'm feeling I should wait, but this IS the last time I'll be getting something big like this from family and I AM entering college laptop-less as of now. What do you guys think? Your opinion is very much appreciated. Also: if I decide to get it, my friends recommend Best Buy to me highly because they say it has a better protection plan than Apple. Is this true? Thank You!!!
