I bought a 12" Powerbook about a year and a half ago. A couple of weeks after the 1 year warranty ran out, my superdrive packed up. I soldiered on for a few months, but finally took it in to the local Applestore on Saturday to get repaired. The Apple Tech called me back today - to replace the superdrive will cost me €583 - that's on top of the €85 they wanted just to look at it, and €25 administration cost (!) I didn't buy Applecare at the time of purchase, but my understanding was that you could buy it anytime up until the end of the 3 year extension period. However, the guy in the store said that you can only buy it within the original 12 month warranty period. Is this correct?
