    I ordered a new macbook pro 15 i7 on the 13th which is currently making it's way to me (slowly). In the meantime am looking into Applecare as was hoping to get it a bit cheaper than direct from Apple, but from reading on here am wary to buy it from eBay. I have found this from Argos but seems cheap...

    Does this look like it is the correct cover? They also do a separate Macbook/Macbook Air cover for £156.

    Looks good. Pick it up from your local Argos if you'd like a no-hassle return option. Don't discount eBay though, for only £90.54 you could buy from a reputable seller who sells applecare all day long.

    Hi OP.

    Can you tell me if the Argos Applecare was OK for your Macbook Pro as I'm thinking about getting it?

    Argos are not being very helpful at the moment and won't give me the product code so I can check with Apple. :confused:

    Thanks

    It is pretty safe buying from eBay if you find the right seller and pay via Paypal so you are protected.

    I picked Apple Care for the iPhone up off eBay for £25.

    I bought my AppleCare protection plan from eBay and it registered no problem. Just make sure the seller is reputable (i.e. top-rated seller, large number of transactions, gold seller, etc.) and you're fine. When I bought mine, I checked the option to have Apple mail me a proof of purchase thing and it arrived in my mail a few days later. That was my way of making sure I didn't get scammed or tricked.
