A little backstory. My computer is nearly 3 years old and the apple warranty will be expired this year. It's still a fine machine and perfectly serviceable, but all of my tech is starting to get out of date. I'm currently using an Ipad 3, and while it's been serviceable, I can start to see some slow down with apps and other things. Now now the question comes if I would rather spend money on a new computer or the newest generation of ipad. I would still have my computer, so for things that absolutely need a computer I wouldn't be SOL.
