Aug 22, 2012 @ 02:49

ahhhh my macbook ppl finally arrived...but @stalker46ss from what I know the old macbook air's werent that hot..had to buy an external hard drive nd shit to play movies nd such...im not too sure about the new ones but due to the fact it's apple you shouldnt have to worry about any internal problems for a minute...As far as the light weight design and shit, it could cause problems if your not careful. I got a friend that stepped on his closed on accident and crackd his screen.

The case won't help if he steps on it like your friend.

Also IMO cases are pointless since they are made out of aircraft grade aluminum

even if it is just a buzzword, I still think cases are for aluminum macbooks are pointless, I have dropped mine and there are no dents, scratches, etc.

yea idk bout the aircraft aluminum thing lol...

Cases for anything are ridiculous for the average user. Unless you're in heavy industries or construction, you don't really need protection, you need common sense.

I have had a 15 inch macbook pro for 3 years now. I can honestly say that I have had no problems at all. I highly recommend buying one
Sep 07, 2012 @ 22:07
And if you get the apple care, they pretty much got your back for like everything

just bought a macbook last sunday and have had it for about 5 days. I like it; it's alot different with the interface and keyboard shortcuts. It takes time to get use to, but after a couple days you'll develop a liking for it. Honestly, I've been using only pc's in the past and I could honestly not really care between a mac or a pc. Invest in a computer that has everything you need.However the plus on the mac is you can run both pc and mac easily, and the design of a macbook is so beautiful.

I bought a Macbook Pro in 2007 and am still very happy with it. I replaced the original HDD with an SSD and must say the spped bump was very impressive. Mountain Lion and all apps run smoothly on it. I guess I will kepp it till it dies... Or till the next generation of Macbook airs come out. I really like them but I just don't like the big beazel around the screen...

I'm an official Mac owner in 2 days. Thanks for all the "information" guys.

Nov 18, 2012 @ 04:36
That's what Apple says but they'll take 16GB

Nov 18, 2012 @ 12:52
Yeah I've been looking at the mac boards people are saying 16gb. Some people mention 32gb but Idk if I need all that
Nov 18, 2012 @ 15:26
How long does a MacBook battery last? And what kind of prices can I expect to see on black Friday or Christmas week
Nov 18, 2012 @ 21:58
I wouldn't expect to see much of a price change in Apple products, if any at all.

Hmmm idk about 32gb maybe in the 15" or the old 17", I don't think the 13" will handle 32gb but I never looked into it.

Apple's international online and retail stores also participate in these sales, though Apple's discounts tend to be very modest. Last year's discounts for Apple's core products were as follows (in USD):

iPad 2 - $41 to $61 Off
iPod nano - $11 off
iPod Touch - $21 to $41 off
MacBook Air - $101 off
MacBook Pro - $101 off
iMac - $101 off

For absolute savings, customers will have better luck with 3rd party merchants that tend to offer steeper discounts on Apple products on Black Friday.

check through the MacRumors Forums, theres quite a bit of people who have done it. You'll notice faster speeds with the SSD than you will with the RAM
