I've recently just ohoned up and bought a macbook pro. when the woman was offering me things like the free printer etc. she then came to applecare, and I heard over the past few years that the extended warranty came free if you are a student (just not the phone service). So i decided what i would be getting by paying an extra reduced price of £40. She said tha it was just the phone support. she also confirmed that i was getting the extra 2 years for free. I'm not certain on this yet, but will check when it arrives monday. ( YAY!!) Does anyone else know whether you do get the extended warranty for free just for being a HE student? Thanks!
