Hello everyone, I am new the the forum and I came here to see if I could find some good advice on purchasing my very first Mac. I'm excited BUT I want to make sure I am getting the right machine for what my needs. I am a Senior in college, studying Graphic Design so I will need my Mac for design/school/music/pictures and anything else I can think of. I was looking at the MacBook but I really don't like the 13" screen. I've played around with one and I thought the screen was just too small for my tastes. SO this leads me to the idea of purchasing a MacBookPro. I want the 15" screen with the 2.66GHz. A friend of mine told me to upgrade the hard drive right away because you cannot do it later soo...what would be a good recommendation of hard drive upgrading? I was going to just pick the best one because it's $100 extra. I plan on purchasing the Apple Protection Plan as well because I am afraid of something going wrong with it. I can be quite clumsy at times. I also wanted to know if anyone has purchased Refurbished macs off of apple.com and should I maybe go that route? ANY advice you guys can give would be greatly appreciated before I commit to buying something. THANKS!
