Well I officially bought a Macbook Pro 13 inch!!!!!
My old computer became completely unusable a few days ago. I think it got a virus (to add to who knows how many it probably had to begin with). I was fed up. I had held out for as long as possible so I decided it was time to go for the Macbook. Today was my first day off since then so I went out to Futureshop and got it.
So far I am very happy with it. It's so light, doesn't make a sound and is very easy to use. I barely had to do anything except turn it on. No installing any software or anything. The guy tried to talk me into buying the Iwork program which I guess had a word processor, spreadsheet etc. I decided to hold off on it, cause I might be able to download Microsoft Office for free from the website of the school which I am taking my course from. But then I discovered that TextEdit (the word processor it comes with already) has the option to save a file as a word document! So I am glad I didn't get sucked into spending more money.
The only thing I am now trying to decide is whether to purchase the extended warranty from Apple or from Futureshop. I have two weeks to buy it from Futureshop and 1 year to buy it from Apple. Of course the guy at Futureshop tried to tell me that their plan is better, because of their "no lemon" policy which states that if you need a repair more than 3 times you automatically get a new computer. I'm not sure if that is reason enough to get it with them.
I think I will probably just get it with Apple, mostly because I have a year to do it, so I can save the money. I definitely will not be able to come up with the money within 2 weeks which means if I got it from Futureshop I would have to put it on my credit card. Also, Apple's is only $249 which makes it $50 cheaper than Futureshop's which is $299. I have also heard during my research that Apple has excellent customer service.
What do you guys think??
