Hey guys! I'm looking to buy a Macbook Pro, my first ever Apple computer. I need a decent machine for college(I attend IT classes such as programming(C#, Java), webdesign, photoshop) which will last me a couple of years. I currently have a Dell Inspiron 1720, which is 2and a half years old (still under warranty). I really want to purchase a news laptop because this one gets random BSOD's (have reformatted it twice already), and is a bit too heavy/big to carry around to school everyday (can't really fit more than 2 books + laptop in my big schoolbag). I don't have a back-up machine to use if this one breaks, and I really need a computer everyday. I don't really care about the "wait for SB stuff", because I want to save as much money as I can. I found this, in my opinion, great deal on a MBP. I think I can lend money from my big sis. I hate lending money but I don't know if I can get a much better deal: -15" MBP purchased from Apple Store in June 2010 - i5 2,4Gz processor- regular glossy screen- 8GBs RAM- 256 SSD- QWERTY keyboard Price without AppleCare : €1600 (came down from €2000-€2400) Price with AppleCare(still in box): €1850 Is this a good deal? I think it is, since the basic i5 2.4Ghz kost €1799 here in the AppleStore. I have some extra questions: 1) minimum laptop requirements NOW for the classes I attend are : Intel Core 2, 4GB RAM, 100GB HDD, WiFi, VGA, CD/DVD reader/burner Will the i5 be sufficient for 4 years minimum? 2)I currently use a Belgian AZERTY keyboard, will the switch to the QWERTY be ok? I do program, I've heard QWERTY is easier for that. Thanks soooo much!
