    I ordered my new macbook pro, the day it was updated :) and it has 2.53GHZ 8gb ram, and 500gb drive, should I also purchase apple care for it now, or wait until the default care runs out???:apple::apple::apple:

    Well you have a year to buy it, which will be my personal route of choice. It's a matter of whether you have the money now or not.

    You already spent 3,000 on your laptop. Apple care is a given. :D

    Well, considering you already dropped almost 3 grand on it. Another 250 shouldn't be so bad. :p

    if you don't purchase it within 3 months..doesn't the phone support run out?
    if you have an apple store near you i guess that wouldn't matter.

    I'd personally wait, and I would purchase it off of ebay for a substantially lower price. The reason I say to wait is that you never know what could happen. You could have an accident and drop it, voiding your warranty, or it could be stolen, etc. Maybe it's just because I'm a procrastinator. :)

    Ive never bought apple care for one of my computers, and I have no idea how it works, and I dont know if it'd be a good idea to purchase it off of ebay or not.

    The price Apple charges for 8GB of RAM in these MBP's makes me cry.

    Please tell me about the common audio in/out port. How does it work? How do you talk and listen in the same time if you want to have a video chat through iChat for example?

    Hey OP, any thoughts on the inaccessible battery or inability to upgrade your ram to 8GB on your own? Or is it something you would take to the Apple Store and have them take care of?:confused::confused::confused:

    you can upgrade by doing either way, however if you do it somewhere other than apple, the warranty ONLY on the ram would be void.

    There is not a common audio in/out on the 17". There are separate input and outputs.

    its easy to use, however you wouldnt talk and listen at the same time, unless you had headphones (which you wouldnt need because you the speakers) with a mic (which you also wouldnt need since there is a built in mic) attached.

    the one think i do not like about the laptop, is when you rest your hands on the mac to type, and your wrists are on the corner, and its a 90 degree angle so it jabs into your wrists, it may be different for you all but its just an observation
