    If I get it what does it cover? Just normal stuff or accidents like if I drop it?

    When purchasing my latest Macbook pro, i was going to purchase AppleCare with it. My choice was made from reading this article;
    http://www.macworld.co.uk/news/mac/applecare-worth-it-3453866/

    However, John Lewis had a promotion on at the time when i made my purchase for which they were including a 3 year guarantee at no additional cost, so this swayed it for me.

    Ah I'm not moving any time soon :(


    Anyways how's the bestbuy warranty? Do they offer it for Macbooks?

    Got my Macbook Pro there in sale for $1094 after the sale and coupon since I'm a student

    I'm pretty sure I am disqualified from the credit card warranty. It needs to be purchased full price i believe and it was on sale and I used a coupon

    Most credit card extended warranties still work if it's on sale, as long as you charge the whole ("full") amount to the card (i.e. no 'split' payments).

    It's a warranty, not an insurance policy. It covers manufacturing defects, period.

    Home/Renters Insurance polices, like mine, will cover damaged MacBooks OP

    I think it makes sense to be curious about how it works for Macs, because AppleCare does offer accidental damage coverage with a small deductible (just like insurance) on other products.

    For me, the biggest selling point of AppleCare for the Mac is international coverage. There are authorized service centers all over the world and it can be taken in for repairs in any country.

    Hence why it's called AppleCare+ on those other products. Different name, different product.
