I agree. If the iMac were more modular and user-serviceable with an external monitor, then I'd probably not buy AppleCare. But with the highly integrated packaging, high repair costs and many of us paying over $3000 for a system, buying AppleCare for the iMac is a no-brainer.Another vote for AppleCare, its a lot more affordable on the iMac then the MBP and I find getting an extra 2 years provides some peace of mind - especially since these machines are virtually sealed and there's no way the consumer can easily update/repair these bad boys
You get a one year warranty and 90 days tech support. You can but AC within that year. The 90 days tech support might be what you are thinking of.I thought it was 90 days?
I'm a big fan of AppleCare. I've only needed it once in about 15-17 years of owning Apples, but the one time I needed it, it saved my bacon.I very rarely buy extended warranties but I got AppleCare when I bought my iPhone. That came in handy when the screen shattered. Should I consider getting it for the iMac?
Yes, I thought the 90 days was like the 60 days for AppleCare+You get a one year warranty and 90 days tech support. You can but AC within that year. The 90 days tech support might be what you are thinking of.
Then to make it even more confusing, there is AppleCare+ for iOS devices that must be purchased within 60 days.
