    Hi folks,

    My iMac 2011 is going to be a year old this month and I'm considering buying the Applecare but through Amazon to save a few bucks and the CA sales tax.

    Is there anything I should know before going that route?

    Once I received it, do I have to register my iMac's serial number with Apple?

    I do remember there being issues a few years back of fake codes being sold on eBay, that said if its actually SOLD by Amazon.com, and not a third party vendor, you should be fine.

    Check out pricing at Adorama.com or B&HPhoto.com, which I've seen posted in other threads. $122 shipped vs. $164 at Amazon. You're looking for Apple Part number: MD006LL/A
