Just got my 11" today and sold the gift card on ebay in about 20 mins for $90 with buy it now. Not bad deal if you don't need the card and want to save another $90.

Yes. Irrelevant.

Info is easy enough to find: store.apple.com and click on "Education" then "Mac Accessories" then "Macbook / MacBookAir/ 13" Macbook Pro"

As it says on the site, AppleCare can be purchased while under standard one-year warranty -- i.e. you can wait until the 11th month of ownership. Only thing you miss out on is being able to use the telephone technical support in months 4 through 11.

Many suggest waiting until close to the end of the initial one year warranty before buying Applecare. Reason being many things can happen in that first year -- you might sell the Macbook to upgrade to a different one, you might lose it or drop it or somesuch.

I expect this has been discussed to death in other threads, a quick search on "should I buy Applecare" out to provide hours of reading. :D

What are you going to apply it to? :D

I thought maybe you were going to Apple Story, but that's been closed. Also, I thought you were going early in the morning? ;-)

Fees depend a little on how you list the item, good source of info:

Take off another 2.9% for paypal.
