I know this has been talked about before and i've read old threads, but I wanted to make a new one to ask a specific question to everyone. People have questioned whether this is legitimate to get applecare at less than half the price, and whether it will be allow by apple, etc... Everyone has just said that it worked for them and that when they called to activate they worked out fine, so why bother asking and kicking up a fuss My problem with that is partially due to the fake itunes gift cards that work, but are fake. So what happens if I buy this expensive laptop, pay for applecare on ebay and save $100, but then 2 years down the road apple figures out that a certain few thousand applecare ID's were fake (the ones sold on ebay) and then all of those warranties will be void. So then I have a faulty logic board and they won't honor my waranty so i'm out $1000 bucks to repair it. I'd rather pay the extra $100 and get a legit applecare for apple and have guaranteed waranty service for 3 years than save $100 and gamble. Having said that I am a poor student and so saving $100 would be very nice. So here are the questions. 1) Have you bought apple care off of ebay? 2) Did it work, and if so how long have you had it for? 3) Has anyone tried calling apple to confirm if these cheap ebay sales are legit? 4) If apple regulates their prices very tightly on all of their products, how can someone possibly sell applecare for ~$100-150 when it retails at $250?
