I'm going to be buying a 2.2 GHz MBP within the next few days (possibly today, you never know) and so I'm shopping around looking at different prices and things. So, a few questions about Applecare versus store warranties: I live in Australia... If I have a problem with my MBP, can I get someone to come and fix it on-site (my house) or will I be forced to send it away? My Dad had a screen problem with "his" school Powerbook (owned by the school, but he has exclusive use) and an Apple guy came to the school and fixed it. It does say in a few places on the Apple website about on-site repair of desktops, but a Powerbook is hardly a desktop... Applecare is so damn expensive. $460 for 3 years hardware warranty and phone support, but I'm confident I won't need the phone support (I imagine it's just for people who don't know how to use computers or Macs, correct me if I'm wrong), but I can get 3 year hardware warranty (without extra phone support) from Apple resellers for only $100 or so. Does anyone have any experiences with non-Applecare warranty? I was going to buy the MBP using the Student ADC discount, but considering the high cost of Applecare (I do want 3 years warranty, because I'll have it for at least 3 years), the discount doesn't seem worth it, even if I end up getting Leopard for free. Is there any other perks that a Uni student like me would get from going the ADC path?
