Hi tommorow or whenever the back to school ipod deal starts I will be purchasing my first MBP. I will be paying using AMEX and I will be getting the high end 15" student discount. I was already planning on going with the 128gb ssd. But the 256 has me intrigued. My grandpa is getting this for me for college and the total needs to be under 3 grand (including tax which in nys is alot). Im getting hi res antiglare for sure and just doing 4 gb of ram. My question is since amex gives you an additional year of warranty is it worth it to spend the 250$ on apple care or to just go big and get the 256ssd. Also could i get the applecare before the year is up for the education discount or do i only get it now?
