    I would jsut like to clarify that if I were to add Applecare (£97.20) I am getting a further TWO years over the basic one?

    However, I have also read here recently that if bought from Apple store for education you automatically get 3 years warranty?

    As a regular user of the Education store, I think this might solve your problem.

    I'm in the UK and I've ordered my iMac a week ago or so. As far as I know you get extended 3 year Apple Care for free on the educational store. It states it on the of Apple's webpages and also, for me, there wasn't an option to add Apple Care into a basket during checkout.

    So I don't think you should purchase Apple Care separately then.

    The free AppleCare is not applicable for the US, FYI. Different countries have different policies. :)

    Thanks for this info, that's certainly new to me. Would think that Apple gives this To US students as well.

    In the UK, it's noticeable that it's not just standard AppleCare you're adding, as the description changes to something like "APPLECARE HE UPLIFT" or some such.

    From what I remember, with no uplift, the service and support page shows just the standard 1-year warranty to begin with, but then a month or so (maybe longer) after purchase, you get an email, and the AppleCare is added, and reflects in the service and support page.

    Weird that the US is different.
