Well I'm most probably going to buy a 12" PB today.

Now my Platinum Visa with BOA says that they double the manufactuers warrenty. How does this work? Has anyone used it before?

And if it does work then buying applecare would be useless? :confused:

i'm not sure how this works, but i don't think it buys you a second year of applecare, its an additional seperate warranrty via the CC company, i would call your CC to hear how that works.
