Hi, All. I've been following MacRumors for news on the Macbook for a long time, been shopping around at a few authorized resellers (unfortunately no Apple store for 3500 km ) and I have been hearing different things. Thought I want to get a few things clear on before I give someone my hard-earned cash If I buy direct from Apple, I am really only interested in a larger hard drive, perhaps up to 80GB since its just $50+ more. I may considered paying for the upgrade RAM to 1GB, but I am not sure if that's a smart move. Is 1 GB of RAM enough in the long run? Seems like everyone on this site is a big fan of 2 GB, but I only do occasionally audiovisual editing. I wanted to know more about AppleCare before I pay the extra cash, so I asked the different salespeople about certain scenarios. The Apple phone sales rep make AppleCare sound like a wonderful thing, how it will completely satisfy me, even if I get the screen cracked. On the other hand, the guy in the store say accidentally damage is not covered, and even if I break a hinge, I am out $800 for a screen. Now who's right? If I am getting from a local store, I could very well have to live with a 60GB drive, would that be workable if I install boot camp as well? How big is a small OSX installation? Does the MacBook use an IDE drive or SATA? Are Apple drives proprietary? Does upgrading the drive myself void the warranty? The apple sales rep say I should expect a BTO system within 10 days, is that realistic? Whereas the store salesman say Apple notarious for slow shipping. Hehe, a lot of questions. Thanks a lot if you can answer them!
