Hello All, thanks in advance for useful feedback. I'm a switcher. I've been a M$ fanboy for a long time and that time is up. The switch started about 3 years ago with my first iPod...the mini I think. Then I got the iPod video. Then the shuffle. Then iPhone. Now I'm addicted, and I live very close to the apple store, which I visit often. I'm going to buy a macbook or a macbook pro as my first venture into macland. Before you jump all over me, this isn't a buy or wait question...I'm already going to wait for the next release. That said, I don't know which to get! MB or MBP? i want the backlit keyboard and aluminum case. I want to play WoW decently, as that's the only game I play anymore. I want to develop with eclipse and use the iLife applications. I want to record my guitar and master some tracks. I want it to run fast, and never slow down! Now for some questions: I've heard they get really hot. However when I've done some searching, most of the topics are from 2006 and 2007. Has the heat issues been taken care of? Can you buy the apple care at any time? Can I purchase the computer and use the first year of their service that comes with the computer since I live so close to the apple store, and then buy the apple care at the end of the year to extend it 3 more years? Or maybe I misunderstand how this works. Since I've never used it, I have no idea: Do you ever have to re-install OSX? If you needed to is it a big deal? On a PC when somethign goes wrong, just reinstall. All my data is on a NAS so I got used to it. To those who've purchased a MBP for similar reasons: Are you happy with your decision? Do you think you could' have bought a MB and been happy? And to those who've purchased a MB: Are you happy with your decision? Or would you rather have more? Sorry for all the questions...Any feedback or comments are appreciated.
