    I haev an old iBook, but the other day I bought a copy of Panther (mine didnt come with the disks...sigh)

    There is this brochure for Apple Care and such, do I qualify for it?

    Also what are the Proof of Purchase coupons for?

    The proof of purchase coupons are for wondering about--just like the contents of the briefcase in Pulp Fiction. They don't really do anything.

    AppleCare must be purchased in the first year of ownership--original ownership. If somebody sold you a 6 month old Mac you could buy AppleCare for another 6 months. A 600mhz iBook is older than a year though, so no AppleCare.
