    Hi to all.

    I'm wondering if anybaody can help me with this.
    I'm just about to order my first ever MAC- MacBook Pro !5'', and I'm wondering if I should get the AppleCare Protection Plan? It was recomendet (from the store I'm about to buy from) that I purchise it since it is a laptop?
    anybody that has some experince with that? Does it help to have that, or is it just a ripoff? I'm...macs don't crash and dont cause any trouble, right?! :D
    THANKS!! :)

    The general rule is buy it for a mobile computer. One repair will exceed the cost of the plan.

    I see you've ordered pretty much the same macbook as I'm about to order( I want the 3GB Ram though), so did you get the Protection plan?

    I didn't know Apple does car insurance :p


    Seriously, get it. I got it for mine, wouldn't be without some form of protection against something going wrong. I pay for mine to be insured too, but that's to do with the insurance company...

    Get AppleCare, definitely worth it for a portable. I'd also strongly second the recommendation to insure your laptop. I insure mine as a named item on my house insurance, which also covers it outside the house anywhere in the world.

    In my opinion, AppleCare AND insurance is a must for any Mac you frequently travel with.
