I almost feel like this question is a bit absurd to ask...but I can't find any good threads with the information I need (maybe I am just a bad searcher..). I just purchased an open box retina 13 macbook pro and I loveeee it. Applecare is $180 and best buy offered me their warranty for 1 yr $150.. 2 yrs $200 I think... it includes accidental damage etc. Now, I love AppleCare. Have it on my Mini and used it 2x already on the logic board....on my iPhone, etc. Their service is amazing and they give you no problems no matter what the issue you bring it in. They say OK, fix it, and you are satisfied. This is how it should be! Now - Geek Squad, is that an entirely different ballgame? I have never dropped or spilled liquid on my computers but I can't stop thinking how it COULD happen (i'm in college) and how devastated I would be. How hard are they to deal with? If I wanted a new computer couldn't I just dump water on my computer and get one? Thanks everyone!
