    I have a Macbook Pro 15inch (Rev A). I didn't purchase Apple Care as I don't think its worth it to be fair and there is always the chance that I would never claim on it and that would in theory 270 pounds wasted.

    So I wasreading a thread on here about a broken PB and it got me thinking :-

    If my Mac was to have a failure (say the logic board blew) - and it was like the 14 month I'd had the computer (so no Standard Warranty) - would I then be able to spend the £270 on Apple Care and get it fixed?

    I ask because I assume that if the Logic Board fails and had to be replaced it would cost a shed load more than 270 quid. So I might aswell buy 3 years worth of Apple Care? Would Apple allow me to do that?

    No. You have to buy Applecare within a year.

    And you're not buying 3 years. You're buying an extra 2 years. One year you already get at the time of purchase.
