Buying my first MacBook... is it advisable to get apple care on it? We have on our phones, been iPhone users always but this is first Mac.
Depends on your needs for peace of mind or not. Apple Care+ will extend your warranty by 2 years and give you accidental damage protection for the same timeframe.
Keyboard issues, if they occur, are covered for 4 years irrespective of Apple Care+ purchase.
i'm pretty easy on them, but the accidental coverage seemed nice. I'm assuming all the hardware and major stuff is covered for a year? Keyboard included?
So without buying it, I get 1 year of the same support and warranty? But accidental damage only comes with Apple care or is that 1 year also?
I will add, I have a special where i can get apple care+ for $215 just at the time of purchase only.
