Well you are technically suppose to register AppleCare before the 1 year ends - if you purchase from a 3rd party seller they dont email you code. A box is sent with code in it. So other than Apple you may be out of luck. Unless you call Apple ask for exemption to be made.

Best place to purchase is from B&H Video.

Try just calling Apple. Saves them from physically examining the laptop. Prices should be about the same across the board.

With 3 days left on your warranty call Apple directly or go to an Apple store to buy it immediately. Any place you can get a discount on it will take too long to ship it to you.

Do not wait until the last day.

IS LA Computer reliable place to buy Applecare ? I will be buying one for MBP 13 soon and just want to make sure they are autorized and reliable. Anyone here have any experience with LA Computer in past ?

I agree. B&H (New York) has the best prices and they are authorized Apple dealers. But if you're not in NY then it's going to be too late to ship.

I think your only choice is directly through Apple.

I had Applecare from LA Computer rejected in the past. At the time they said they lost any official reseller status.

Apple reserves the right to reject any Applecare not purchased through them.

Why not buy from Apple? If you know any teacher / college student you can get a discount. It's $183 then with the discount for the 13" models.
