I currently have macbook pro 2.6ghz 200gb 7200rpm 512mb early 2008 with 20 days left in warranty. I have the following options: Sell it for 1700$(I am in europe), get a netbook for 380$ to get by. Sell the nebook in 4 months for about 280$ and buy the New macbook with quadcore...or an imac 27" quadcore. ($ available 1600 after all) Keep it. Pay 180$ Extra for applecare on ebay. sell it next year for 1300. ($ available 1120 after all) Option 2 is the easiest cause i do not really want to use windows. I may also not buy again if I use option 1 as i need money for getting chained up( married)... What do you guys think?
