    I bought a MBP last year and everything seems to be fine so far...*touch wood*.

    My free year of warranty has just run out though according to the website. Can I purchase applecare now and extend it?

    I dont really want to pay over the odds to fix it if something goes wrong...

    No, you have to buy AppleCare during your first year. You can't buy it once your 1-year warranty expires.

    Yes you can but you need a genus to do it in store with your device. I've done this once before 90 days outside the year! They health check it and then set u up.

    No, you can't.

    The fact that you got an Apple rep to break the rule doesn't change the rule and can't be counted on to work for others.
