    Hi,

    I am wondering is there any cheap option like using old PowerBook Applecare for new Macbook Pro etc?

    I did this 3 years ago for my 15.4" MBP, it worked without any problem, and I purchased the old PowerBook Applecare for ony $120 or $130 from Techforless.

    They don't carry it anymore, so I am wondering what would be the cheapest option to legally get an MBP Applecare?

    TIA!

    If you're able to use the educational discount, it'a worth noting that Applecare has a massive price drop. I paid £60 for mine using the education store.

    $239 at Apple under the edu discount.

    What happened to all the ebay sellers? Can you still buy from there and register the code?

    this massive discount is only in the UK - it is so massive because UK students actually get a FREE 3 year warranty from Apple. Therefore, if you are student in the UK AppleCare is pointless because Apple offers you a FREE 3 year warranty

    And no tax, in most states.

    You can also try adorama. If you have a upromise account, you can also get 5% cashback. Some credit cards also offer special cashback to either of these retailers.

    I did not know about this before a few years ago either. Apple should disclose this on their website because a lot of British students are not aware of it.
