You can usually get Applecare cheaper elsewhere but you can't get a 4 year plan. Assuming you plan on keeping the machine 4 years this sounds like a deal to me. Applecare has more than paid for itself on every machine I've bought it for.I can buy a 4 year Apple Care as the price of normal Apple Care, as an student. Should I get it?
NO. you can wait until the end of the first year to extend the warranty up to 3 years total time from purchase or registration date. There is no 4 year warranty available and if there was it would cost more since after year years things get old and the odds of a needed repair goes up a lot. 5 years would cost even more/yr for the same reasons, just like a carSo, if I buy a new iMac, it comes with a year warranty. And so I could wait till a month before my one year is up and buy the 3-year AppleCare and technically get 4 full years under warranty? Is this correct?
