    Hi there. I'm planning on ordering my 20" iMac today, and I was wondering about adding AppleCare. Do I need to purchase AppleCare immediately or can I do it later? If my computer flakes out before I have purchased AppleCare but during the first 90 days, do I still have the same amount of support as if I had purchased AppleCare?

    Thanks!

    I believe you can purchase Applecare anytime within the initial 90days and the level of coverage is the same.

    I thought you can buy Applecare anytime within the first year?

    Most likely yes - I was thinking of the telephone support, when I suggested 90days. The warranty is for the first year. :eek:

    technically its 1st year for warrenty, but if dont hav eapple care you cant call in to tech support without being charged 49 bux after the first 3 months. So for complete coverage its 3 months - then you get tech support warrenty for 3 years.
