When you buy Applecare from the Apple store. Does the purchase extend your warranty from the point of purchase of Applecare or the point of purchase of the computer itself? I'm saving up to get a Macbook Pro with the fancy new processor. I'd like to have Applecare on it because laptops have a higher margin for failure (moving parts on a moving computer, you know how it is), and i know that many companies that offer warranty on their products usually make their products with components that will fail just after the warranty expires. Thus making your investment worthless, I'm sure Apple is no exception. So the question is basicly... Can i buy Applecare just before the one-year warranty expires and therefore get four years of coverage? Or will the three years start from the time i purchased the computer the Applecare service is for?
