    So I'm very technology handicapped, I should probably say that first.

    I'm curious as to upgrades on my macbook. I bought the extended warranty on my macbook, bought it in 2007, so the warranty expires 2010. It's worked great up until about a month ago when it started having problems. The macbook is staring to show a little wear and tear (I've never dropped it amazingly), bt pieces are chipping off. I'm going to take it in shortly to see what Apple can do for me.

    But my main question is that I'd like to purchase a new laptop all together when the warranty expires, since the laptop is getting worn. I'm wondering if Apple has any discounts, or 'upgrades'. Perhaps they'll pay for part of it when I buy a new laptop? Or should I just get certain parts of the my laptops software upgraded, and can I do that?

    Sorry for the long question, any help would be greatly appreciated!! :D

    Apple do not do trade-ins/upgrade pricing etc. As it's a laptop you can officially upgrade the RAM and CPU only. Third-parties can also offer upgraded optical drives. The CPU/Graphics etc cannot by upgraded.

    They won't pay/credit you a dime. No computer company will for that matter that I've ever seen.

    As far as user upgradable parts: RAM and Hard Drive, and if you have an old ComboDrive, you can upgrade to a SuperDrive I think.
