My 1 year is about to expire and am seriously contemplating whether I want AppleCare or not. I am, as of right now, leaning towards not getting it. The only reason why I would want to is if my GPU fails. Everything's been pretty good so far. It is my first mac and given the experience so far, I will never go back to PC. So... I'm sure you know what I'm getting at. If my GPU fails w/o AppleCare, will Apple repair it regardless? (Due to very well known defects) Why should I as a consumer, be obligated to buy AppleCare for this reason alone? I only found out about the nvidia issue shortly after purchasing my unit. If I don't end up getting AppleCare, I am obviously willing to accept anything else that may happen beyond my first year.
