    I am getting a MacBook Air from America, and want to get Applecare for it. If I buy AppleCare in the UK will it work on the American computer?


    I think I read somewhere that you can purchase AppleCare anywhere and it's the same, but I just want to check.

    There is only one AppleCare, no matter where it's sold.

    Exactly. It applies wherever Apple is, worldwide.

    Cheers

    Why are buying AppleCare in the UK ? It is much cheaper to buy from eBay.com as several members of this forum have done. The AppleCare box contains a code number which you use to register on-line.

    It does not matter where you buy the AppleCare and you can buy it anytime up to the first anniversary of the purchase date.

    My friend bought his MacBook from Germany and then Apple Care from US and didn't have a problem.

    The laptops are covered world-wide, the desktops and iPhones are not.

    The AppleCare Protection Plan is a uniquely integrated service and support solution that extends the complimentary coverage on your Mac to three years from the computer’s purchase date. This comprehensive plan includes expert telephone technical support, global repair coverage, onsite repairs for desktop computers1, web-based support resources, and powerful diagnostic tools — all for one economical price. We recommend that you purchase the AppleCare Protection Plan when you purchase your Apple system to take maximum advantage of the coverage the plan provides.

    desktops are covered globally too

    All Macs, including desktops and laptops, are covered world-wide by the APP.

    Desktops are covered, but I can't image people traveling with a desktop unless you're a professional. And iPhones are only supported in countries where they are officially sold.
