I looked into the refurbished section and found a new basic model in there. Great deal for $1799+TAX. Excellent online ordering experience too. Very easy, and Apple's shipping speed is amazing. It said to expect 3-5 days for shipment, but it shipped today. Also, another 8 days to deliver, but it'll be here by May 14. Amazing! I love Apple. My first time using a Mac, so I'm really excited. Are there anything I should watchout for? Any tips? Just to confirm one thing: I am able to buy apple care within 1 year of the purchase time right? Many Thanks!
