    I have 2-3 weeks left before my AppleCare expires on my Blackbook. I was just wondering if there is anything I should check before my AppleCare is up. I don't have any problems at the moment and everything is running great, I just would hate to find something go wrong after the fact, knowing that I missed some tale tale signs.

    So far my AppleCare has replaced my hard drive over a year ago and my charger/battery a couple weeks ago.

    -Thanks in advance

    first off can we get the stats on the blackbook to maybe give you pointers on what has and will probably go wrong.

    Why not Lion on this model of MacBook? Is there a disadvantage compared to Snow Leopard?

    Nooooo; I wrote the entire post and the word editor I'm using just crapped out on me lol; but, in short, Lion uses more resources, has problems with older applications, and the UI is drastically overdone. Worst of all? No Expose and Spaces as they thought it would be better to combine them into a cluster**** on one page.
