Hi everyone, First time poster here. I bought my first mac after spending the rest of my life on PCs, and I decided on the 2012 Classic Macbook Pro for $1050 on Amazon. I own a 5 year old Ipod Nano and a 1 year old Iphone, both of which have been perfect in terms of reliability. I was tired of my Windows computers always breaking down around year 3 of ownership and requiring pricey repairs, so I assumed that Macbooks held the same level of reliability as Iphones and Ipods, which is, to say, outstanding. I didn't go for a retina macbook pro based on price, non-upgradeability and repairability of components, and generally not appreciating the retina display. I didn't think the 13 inch pro was too thick or heavy, and I thought that the retina display should have just been a screen option on the regular Macbook Pro, not an entirely new line. A perfect 13 inch pro to me would have been this computer, but with Haswell and the Iris Pro built in. Apple would never have done this though. So, my question to you guys is this: 1) Since the pro I bought is the last of its kind, it should be the most reliable, kind of like the last model year in a car before a major overhaul. In your experience, has this been true? How reliable is this unit? 2) I have never purchased Applecare on any of my Apple products. Would you recommend it here? 3) Am I unreasonable to want this unit to last 5 years without breaking? Thanks guys!
