    I'm buying a 24" iMac today. First Mac. New to Mac and all this. I was very happy to find this forum. They are offering extended protection for my new purchase. Also expensive Geek Squad protection for 1, 2 and 3 years. Any need for this? Any advise would be appreciated.

    Screw the Freak Squad. Just buy AppleCare at any time in the next year.

    How careful are you with your possesions?
    If you are careful, your 1 year warranty will cover most things, but NOT PHYSICAL DAMAGE. The day before the 1st year is up, you can get an extended warranty.
    I personally would wait.

    Magnum condoms.

    Don't go for the bb extended warranty. Do apple care sometime within the next year because you're much better off with apple handling the warranty than some random contractor at best buy.
