I purchased 13" MacBook Pro from Apple.com and decided not to get AppleCare that was offered to me. I will be traveling a lot with MacBook so there is very high risk of accidental damage and theft. Can anyone recommend any insurances and possibly at the same time warranty extenders for the MacBook Pro? I have read about these options, but need more recommendations in each to decide. Thanks! 1). AppleCare -In my opinion would work best for warranty extension since it is Apple itself that will be fixing computers -Do I have to purchase now, or it can be purchased within the year when 1 year warranty is about to expire? -BIG CON: NO ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE AND NO THEFT PROTECTION 2). Geek Squad -I used them for less expensive items like headphones/ipods. They gave me new items, without even asking what the problem was with old ones. But I do not think it will be that easy with MacbookPro. -Can I buy insurance form them even if I purchased laptop from Apple.com? -No Theft protection? 3) SquareTrade -Need more information , never heard of them -Prices seem to be expensive 4). Renters Insurance -Learned about this option fromm this forum -I guess it is the only option that covers theft and accidental damage...what about warranty extension in case laptop breaks in 2 years? -Do I have to have home insurance to insure a laptop, or is it a separate plan? If so, which company do you recommend? 5). Please recommend OTHER available options I would really appreciate if you can list the pros/cons for any of the options. Your recommendations will really help me. Thank you very much everyone!
