The warranty is good but you have got to hit your computer with a hammer at least twice a day for that to pay off in the end. I think there is some etc. stuff, maybe surge protectors, but who doesn't have 15 of them sitting in a closet? Seriously, we should stay away from these bundles.
For those of us who don't know about computers . . .
Are you saying there is a difference between <a class="linkification-ext" href="http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/specs-13inch.html" title="Linkification: http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/specs-13inch.html">http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/specs-13inch.html</a> and the 13in Macbook Pro in the UG bundle? Or are you saying that the Macbook Pro is using last gen's technology in general?
Sorry, I'm not great with pronouns. My reference was to the Lenovo laptop which had a Core 2 Duo in it, which is last generation intel processing technology. The newer processors go by i3/i5/i7. The link you posted also has a Mac with a core 2 duo, still a fairly fast processor, but probably showing its age. Regardless, if you are gonna type and listen to music on that laptop it will be fine. You don't buy Mac's for the hardware really so it's not a huge concern. So if Mac is using Core 2 Duo's its older but not a major issue.
