    This is something I still don't know if I want or not. I have a few questions regarding this also, so here it goes.

    1. If I choose not to purchase AppleCare that same day, can I purchase it anytime before the 90 day or 1 year (can't remember which) expires. As it is, I'm going to be short on cash after I purchase the MB, plus a bag and the iwork for school. Thanks

    You need to register AppleCare within the first year. You can buy it anytime as long as you register it in time (so buying online with 1 day left is not a great idea as you may fail to register in time)

    90 days is for free phone support. If you buy Applecare it covers phone support from day 91- 3 years.

    I'm going to assume you order your machine online? Then yes it means it was already applied to your name at time of shipping.
