    i don't know whether i should buy the APP with my 12" iBook or not, but i'm having a deal.

    there is currently a promo at my apple store, that if you buy the APP with the computer at the same time, you get alot of discount, so:

    Regular APP for 12" iBook: $389
    Student Discount: $298
    Same-day discountL $229

    these are canadian dollars btw, for the Yorkdale Retail Store Toronto

    final question for everyone: did you or did you not buy the APP? Why and why not? and if you did, did you use it?

    thanks all

    I haven't personally purchased AppleCare before... others can give you first hand accounts. However, I did do a quick search and found a couple of relevant threads you can peruse in the mean time.

    I'll give you the same advice I give everyone who asks me based on my experience...if you get a portable...get AppleCare, if not then you don't need to buy it unless it will provide peace of mind for you. Just my 2 cents... ;)

    If you don't care about saving the 70 Canadian, you could wait 10 months or so, and then add the Applecare.

    I got it. My only other experiance with a laptop was an absolutely woeful NEC Versa Note back in 1999-2002...I got 4 years warranty on it (school thing) and was making a claim every other week. Hence, I have an unshakable opinion that laptops are much, much more likely to pack up then desktops, and at least with desktops, I can simply open it up and fix it myself.

    My 2 cents anyway...
