    I decided i will defiantly get applecare, i decided this when i bought my macbook in July. I didn't buy right away as i had the one year warranty and i could by it anytime within that year. But when the new macbooks come out some time in the next year (Before july 09) will they cover my macbook. I need to know because if they come out and i don't have apple care and can't buy it for my macbook, when the warranty runs out i will be screwed. So will the new macbook applecare cover my current macbook?

    No. You will have to buy another Applecare plan for the new Macbook. It doesn't transfer.

    No i haven't bought it yet, but if they bring out the new macbook, say tomorrow, apple will stop selling the old macbook cover plan. Will the new macbooks applecare, if bought, cover my current gen?

    Yes - you can buy AppleCare up to 1 year after the original purchase date. New models won't make any difference. Even if they were to call the new MacBook something totally different AppleCare for your MacBook will still be available.
