    It is apparently covered by worldwide Applecare cover! Something that even the iMac isn't!

    Only discovered this clause when I got my APP certificate for my Macbook and was reading the terms and conditions for the service. Guess I will get APP for the coming Mini too :D

    Really? I thought it was only portable Macs that were covered internationally. I guess the mini is quite portable... :cool:

    Try reading this:

    I like how they specifically include the Mac Mini :)

    Cool! That is nice =)...good find. Maybe there should be a sticky about warranties and list which products have worldwide support and which dont.

    Great find Generik

    I think for now it is probably iPods, Minis, and the Macbooks... if only the Mac Pros and iMacs are covered too :rolleyes:

    I remember correctly a genius telling me it was now worldwide on all computers i even remember it being major news on AppleInsider or macworld. I guess if you want to play it safe then......

    Edit: Found the story! Enjoy

    That article is from Feb, but why is it that the T&C for Applecare isn't updated even now? :eek:

    It does not seem so authorative (the article)

    Apple Computer this week expanded its global warranty coverage to its entire computer system matrix, AppleInsider has been told.

    I am pretty sure apple would had updated their information about warranties quickly. Easiest thing would be to contact support and ask them I guess

    I'd say the same too, I wouldn't put much store into it especially in view that the T&C for AppleCare is quite explicit about this.
