Once on Mac, You Never Go Back…Or Do You???

One of the things I said I wanted to get this year is one of those cute little netbooks as an alternative for Apple, my red-shelled MacBook. So far I am still trying to decide if I want to do that (go back to a non-Mac lappy that is, hehe) or if I should just get an iPad or perhaps stick with the MacBook. To be fair, I still love Apple so very much and it has been serving me well. However, since my Apple Care (the Mac’s laptop warranty) has expired already, getting it repaired and serviced kinda costs an arm and a leg. In fact, recently I had to buy one of those magsafe chargers because the one that came with the unit got broken and it cost me almost Php 5,000.  Also, the battery has died out completely already and when I had it checked, I was informed that I used up all its charging cycles already (whatever that meant haha!).

A new one would cost me about Php 7,000. Now….do I really want to invest in that or should I just go get one of those smaller ones instead??? Haha. Like I said, I love my Mac but I see now that it’s LCD starting to flicker a bit and I’m kinda afraid it will need replacing soon. *sigh*

Let’s hope Gadget Claus brings me something good for Christmas, eh? 😉 hehe.

    What I don’t like about MAC is that you can’t upgrade parts. You want to upgrade one? buy a whole new set of laptop, which sucks. The fact that you are paying for the brand not the quality is another thing, but that’s just me. No offense to MAC users okay? 🙂
