I know I’m not going to get a Core 4 laptop in a year’s time (maybe a Core 4 iMac, but this laptop’s got to last). And even if it’s performed flawlessly, I don’t know it won’t fail at any moment.
A friend has promised a programme that will predict a failure (but do I trust it?) And I’ve heard that if you don’t buy AppleCare in the first 90 days you don’t get the phone support, but I can’t find this anywhere in writing.
What a pity AppleCare isn’t on offer in today’s one day sale!
