Ok so im going off to college next fall and probably wont buy anything until then but i have some questions i liked answers because i like to do a lot of research before i buy something expensive. I was looking at apple.com and have decided i want a macbook pro over any other mac for the portability. ive been reading forums here at macrumors and have seen that noone likes to buy their RAM from apple. Why? (i have never opened a computer though its something that interests me greatly) i would buy it from apple so as to not break my computer and void my warranty in one fell swoop but is it that beneficial? Second while looking at the apple care i saw that if i bought it with my mbp it would also cover a thunderbolt display if i bought them together for no extra charge but first i need to know is apple care worth it? and second is the tb display worth 1k extra? Third i can buy a time capsule for automatic backup and i beleive it would also be covered by AC. but first is tc worth it? Finally i priced out the high end 15' mbp and the 17' and realized i can get the exact same specs for the same price minus the extra 200$ or so for the base 17' any suggestions?
