    I bought a Macbook and Applecare for it from my school's computer store.

    They gave me Applecare for ibook. Can I use that for my macbook or should i go back and request for macbook's applecare?

    Thanks

    It's perfectly normal. The MacBook was the iBook replacement, so the AppleCare is the same.

    If it's less than one year old (i.e., was originally purchased from Apple less than a year ago), yes. Otherwise, no. And, if you do buy it, it (Applecare) needs to be registered for that Mac - again, within that first year after initial Apple purchase of the iMac.
