    I have the macbook pro, and I found applecare off ebay for $170 shipped from someone reputable :D

    I got my macbook pro in october for $1699, my edu store had a discount of 100 off on top of the edu discount because they weren't going to be getting any computers in with leopard pre-installed for a while (and as incentive to buy it from them over Apple store).

    Good deals :D

    Nothing! Apples last longer than PCs (or so I've heard), are more reliable, and are just better so why would I need Applecare? :D

    I would recommend it on the laptops... from experience.

    $180 for MBP from eBay (reg code sent by email in 4 hours after payment, registered without any problem).

    I bought mine at LA Computer Company for my Powerbook G4. It was the least expensive I could find at the time, around $250 I think. They even called me after I ordered to see if I needed the activation code sooner than the shipment would arrive (to activate it before the end of year 1).

    You sure can. Just be sure to have it activated before your 1-year included warranty runs out. Otherwise, it'll be no Apple Care for you!

    Yes, you have a year (from the date you purchased the computer) to decide whether or not you want to extend with AppleCare.
