AppleCare + MacBook Pro The Mac Store just sent me a letter about AppleCare for my MacBook Pro. 2 more years of extended warranty protection for my laptop would cost $349. What do you think, should I purchase AppleCare for my mac? Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInRedditEmailLike this:Like Loading... Related

I think it’s incredibly overpriced.
I also think, given that it’s difficult to do any kind of meaningful hardware repair on a MacBook, that it might be your best option if you can afford it.
AppleCare is one thing I really dislike about Apple.
My two cents.
It is overpriced, I agree, but it’s also amazing if something breaks that will cost you more than $349. And those internal parts are expensive. I say go for it, if you can afford it.
i say if you can afford it, do it. its like insurance… a ridiculous rip-off that occasionally saves a life:)
Dennis – You’re such a PC user ;-)
Michael and Vegankid – Thanks for the advice… now I just need to find an extra $349 in the couch cushions…
I’m striving to offer you input that you won’t hear from anywhere else, that’s all.
I think you should get AppleCare if you can afford it. Michael and vegankid are both spot-on.
And I’m not a PC user by choice, but by cost constraint =)
Give that a read. AppleCare might not be as all-inclusive as it may sound to be.
… meaning, just read the warranty word for word and cover your ass, make sure you don’t end up spending the $$$ on AppleCare only to have to pay a large amount out of pocket when something breaks, be it your fault or not.
Dennis – I was just kidding ;-)
Vic – Thanks for the link/advice. My laptop is the second most expensive thing that I own. It generates income, provides entertainment and educational value, and is my means of communicating with a lot of people. Caring for it is definitely a priority.
I always get it but you can find it on ebay for about half of the apple store price – just make sure you buy the correct one for your apple!
