    The apple care extended warranty is only 2 years on the back of the original one-year. And, no, they won't extend it. You can find third party warranties from places like squaretrade but I don't know how much value they have.

    Then you get to learn a whole lot about your mac by DIY ;)(a lot of help can be found in the MBP discussion section). Being out of apple care doesn't mean apple won't repair it, it just means it will cost some moola.

    can you extend AC for another 2/3 years (meaning 5-6 yrs of coverage since original purchase) as long as you buy it still under warranty? MAybe that's what the OP was saying?

    The OP was very obviously saying that, and the posters after them have made it very clear that no, you can't. You get three years from the date of purchase (original date of purchase, btw) and no more, ever, nada. Apple simply does not offer any sort of guarantee that they will fix your machine after three years without you ponying up the cash for each repair.
