I'm new to this forum and have read quite a bit before posting. First off I have to say iv not kept up with tech like I use to and so not nearly as smart as I once was on the latest. First off I am looking at replacing my cheap dell notebook that I hate (windows 8) with a rMBP. I went to the apple store to loom at them and compare them with the air and the display sold me. I mainly will use it for watching movies and tv shows (we don't have cable, only a few shows I watch) and browsing the web. Looking at the 13in with 8gig and 256 memory in hope it will last quite awhile. So the big questions: 1. Advantages of buying from apple instead of best buy? The salesman yesterday only gave one reason and that was the one2one program but I'm not interested in that. 2. Is AppleCare worth the extra money? 3. Must have software? 4. How easy will it be to get music and videos from the windows machine to the mbp? Note this will he my first Mac, use to avoid them but with windows 8 on this PC giving me tons of freeze ups and crashes and my new found love of my iPhone (was an android guy) I want to love on.
