    Subject pretty much covers it. I was just wondering how many went ahead and purchased it. I did because I was in an apple store couple weeks ago and a lady came in with a 1 1/2 year old laptop which had problems and they gave her a new computer because she had it.

    I got Squaretrade. The build quality just doesn't seem that well, I am worried about accidents. Plus, I have three years of coverage.

    I bought my Applecare on EBay.
    Spending an extra $60 on a $900 purchase seemed pretty reasonable to me.

    Not yet but I will more than likely buy it near the end of my iPad 2's year warranty.

    No, it's before the year warranty.

    I like AppleCare and always buy it for my new Macs. But I
    believe it's a big waste of money on an iPad.

    However I like that others buy it cause it pumps up the value of my Apple stock. :)

    Same here: got it for the big Macs but not for iPad or iPhones. They don't last so long ... Refresh cycle is too short ;-)

    I opted for Squaretrade. It seemed to be the better deal.
