    Back in 2008 I bought Apple Care from this guy on ebay. It was much cheaper than Apple's price. Worked perfectly, but he's no longer listed as a seller.

    I'm about to buy a macbook pro again. Where would you suggest is the best (least expensive) place to buy apple care please.

    Oh, and I'm thinking of ordering the macbook pro from amazon.com cause it's 150 cheaper than from apple direct. Any pros/cons to that? Thanks for your advice.

    Amazon has some good prices.

    The thing with eBay is you may get a counterfeit copy which apple may or may not have issues. If they only provide the code to register applecare it may be counterfeit. The actual box means its probably genuine.

    Apple gives a student discount on Apple Care.

    I contacted b&h and they told me they can't send/sell applecare to me cause I've got a florida address. But I still may buy the laptop from them.

    That sounds strange. Never heard of that happening before.

    here is part of the response they sent me:

    "Florida state law prohibits the sale of out-of-state extended warranties to a Florida address. So you would not be able to purchase the Apple Care through us if you are using a Florida shipping address.
    You would have to purchase it locally.

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

    Thank you for choosing B&H."
