Is Apple Care necessary?
I am looking at purchasing a 15" powerbook and am wondering if it really is necessary to buy the applecare plan. Also, is the 4200 rpm good on the hard drive or do I want the 5200 rpm? I would save $112. I was also thinking about upping the memory to 1 GB. I just couldn't see paying the over $1000 price tag. Also, can anyone tell me if the 15" ones are a mid cycle and my possible purchase would be a big mistake. I understand that it is not a good idea to purchase at the end of the cycle. Is this true?
