    Just recently received the email saying AppleCare is available to you NLT January 30, 2012. So I purchased AC for my original iPad & my iPad2...:cool:

    I always self insure for this kind of thing, I take out no extra waranty cover for anything in the house including computers, a dedicated insurance note is used rarely for some items that travel.
    On the whole I make a big profit from this.

    A year. You have until the initial warranty (always 1 year for Apple products) expires to purchase AppleCare.

    You have one year from the date of purchase and that's the same with the iPhone. iPads & iPhones have 90 of telephone assistance...:cool:

    Hey guys, I don't know what are the actual benefits of having Apple Care for the iPad. I haven't had an Apple Care for any of my previous Apple products, and never had a problem with it.
    Although it says they will replace your dead battery, i dont know if anyone has actually used other services. Just curious.

    He's thinking the 30-day limit for AppleCare+ - the one with accidental damage protection. You can only buy that for iPhone within the first 30 days.

    Thanks, then I guess I will add it if the next iPad doesn't force me to buy it. :D

    I buy it with all my apples and used it a lot on my first iMac so it was worth it on that one.

    I didn't know what Apple Care was when I bought my iPad. I'm still not sure if I would have bought it if I did. I got Apple Care when I bought my MBA, though. It was such a big purchase for me that I wanted some insurance for it.

    I get AC only for those devices which stay a bit longer with me like iMac, MBP or MBA. With the quick release cycles of iPad and iPod I don't see the need for AC. If it really would break after regular warrenty I would count it as bad luck.
    Until now I ride good with that; I used AC for MBP and it was helpful

    If you purchased with a credit card, you may already have an additional warranty period. My card offers doubles the warranty period of purchased items.

    I wish I had bought a squaretrade warranty - I'm more worried about it getting dropped/broken than anything else.
