Firstly, hello everyone, new to the forum. I'm an engineering student in the UK, thinking of moving into the Mac world with my first laptop, i'm looking at the mid range MB (White - 2.4GHz, 2GB, 160GB). Main use will be for university work, not involving specialist software, i've got my windows desktop for that. I've got a plethora of questions actually, but i'll start with the most obvious. I'm thinking of buying a MB at the moment for revision, working in my room seems impossible for me, i need to be surrounded by people working to be productive (i seem to get distracted looking at new laptops and things...). I can survive in my current situation but i'll definitely be needing a laptop for next year anyway, but i'm wondering if i should wait til september because last year they gave free nanos and i'm thinking they might do something similar this year. This coupled with the possibility of an upgrade ~August time is making me think i should wait. Opinions please? Also, do mac prices gradually decrease as with most tech, i was under the impression they didn't so much. If it's just a style upgrade i'm not bothered really, i much prefer the look of the current MB to the MBP in aluminium anyway. Another thing is should i go for AppleCare? It's only £47 with HE discount which sounds like a steal to me but i've seen it suggested that i should wait until the warranty is nearly up first? And finally, i'm the rider of a motorcycle and don't fancy coming off one day to find both my pride(s?) and joys in pieces. Can anyone recommend a case robust enough to withstand the above. ...Also, remote: worth it? Well that was longer than expected, hope you guys can give me a hand. Thanks for your help.
