This is the first time I'm actually purchasing a mac for myself, other times it has been gifts from family members. I'm 18, a student entering college this fall.
Case in point: not all of us are rich people, we work hard for our things and thusly take more pride in them .Worked super hard this last past year, and this will be my first mac. Believe me it wasn't simple hitting the "order" button but I figured since I just turned 21 and my funds allowed it I'd treat myself to something nice.
+ Selling my old laptop and desktop to offset some of the cost.
I hope I don't regret the purchase down the line!
Perhaps some make a living by using their computer, and its speed and features make a difference. Photographers, programmers, artists, etc.
I waited 3-4 weeks to get my 2007 MBP. Looks like I might be playing that exact game again,Ordered a retina fully maxed out yesterday and it's still processing... depressing!! I almost went to the Apple Store today to get a non retina fully maxed out but my friend put some sense back in me... i'm too damn impatient.
AppleCare for free? Why that would be quite nice!I bought mine at 2-3 weeks. So I am just going to try and forget about my status etc and wait til I get a dispatch email before I think about it again. Dont mind waiting as ordering it online at my university campus means I get applecare for free, and a 15% discount on the macbook itself.
