    A friend of mine is ready to purchase AppleCare for his Power Mac G5 which is nearly 12 months old.

    It costs £199 in the UK but he has seen it on eBay from the USA for roughly £100.

    I'm sure I saw a thread on here which said it was safe to buy AppleCare like this, but I can't find it doing a search. He just needs to know it is going to work ok before he buys it.

    It's AppleCare for the Power Mac & Mac Pro.

    We need to know if the USA product will work in the UK.

    Does anyone have more experience in getting global warranty coverage for their desktops?
