I currently use a 2005 Toshiba Tablet PC, and I never should have bought it because I've truthfully never used the tablet function aside from playing around when I first bought it. So I have a history of buying beyond my needs. It was a great computer at first but after about 2 years it was completely awful, dead pixels, scratched keypad, among other things. Now that it's been 3 years, I'm going crazy. My first question is- if I buy the apple care protection plan when I order my iMac, if dead pixels pop up after 2 years, am I still able to send it back and have those fixed? I tried reading about the plan at the apple store but it didn't give me in depth info. Second question- I don't know anything about what to upgrade and what to leave alone as far as ordering my iMac. I am not a graphic design student, but I download a lot of music, pictures, movies. Should I upgrade to 4 GB RAM and a 1 TB serial ATA drive? I had to delete some movies from my iTunes because I didn't have room, and I intend on downloading a lot more music and movies once I get a decent computer. My Toshiba's info is this- Intel(R) Pentium(R) 1.6 GHz 590 MHz 496 MB of RAM. and I currently have 2% free space on my computer, and this is after I deleted a bunch of programs. I know people will probably say go as far as I can afford, but it's not a question of what I can afford, I just don't understand what these numbers mean in terms of my own needs. Thanks to anyone that can help.
