    Merhaba! Taksim was crazy busy. Didn't really see much of the night life whilst I was there but my girl knows some club owners & guys that run nights so should be epic. I've heard there's a big Trance scene! But thats not really my cup of tea.

    Maybe I can Break some sense into them...

    Progressive House is big too, but as all around the world there is this dubstep craziness.

    Kinda the same thing…just slower and slightly less paddedly epic. If those are words.

    This is exactly what I got a couple of weeks ago, minus the upgraded hard drive. I figure I'll add in a ssd in the dvd drive eventually. ALso plan to up the ram to 8gb eventually...but noticed that it can handle up to 16gb...right now thats a bit pricey, so I might wait awhile and go crazy.

    The only thing I'd upgrade through Apple is the display

    Buy Kingston RAM if you want that upgrading (Lifetime Warranty)

    BUY AppleCare! I'm a certified apple technician and one repair may cost you the price of AppleCare, You can buy it anytime within the first year

    Like the others have said, SSD all the way!

    Having said that, of the drive you get will be covered by AppleCare should it fail!

    Just make sure you budget for an external hard drive backup option and do regular backups, Carbon Copy Cloner is my preferred choice, but Time Machine is good enough

    Curious about apple care...what can an apple technician do for me that I couldn't do myself?

    Wouldn't any damage or faulty parts be covered under the warranty? Other than that, I can't really figure out what I'd need it for?

    I had a buddy asking the same question before, so I did this video review. I think it might address some of your questions.

    And to keep mine safe, I have a speck see thru case, a case logic sleeve, and i ordered a moshi clear guard keyboard cover. All on my channel, and the moshi clear guard review should be up in a week or so. I hope this answered your question. I love my MBP for DJing, I find I have no problems and it all runs smoothly, and it gives me peace of mind, knowing it will be stable in the short term (gigs) and last long term (hopefully).

    After the first complementary year you NEED the next 2 years Apple Care.
    If your logic board goes bust or you have technical failure Apple will replace the stuff on the Applecare.

    With out Apple Care you better have very good laptop insurance that covers general break down cus most does not cover for parts.

    I wont gig with a Mac that isnt covered by Apple Care which is why i change my Mac every 3 years.

    Apple care has saved my ass twice from a huge Logic Board bill.

    Sounds goog guys, thanks for all the feedback. I think i'm reading the things I was expecting to read.

    Glad that it gives me a while to save up for the Apple care, tho what happens in the first year & you don't have apple care ? Are you still covered for parts under the warrenty ?

    Thanks for the comments guys.
    Can't wait to get my hands on one of these Beasts...
