    Well after many years I bit the bullet.... I went to Best Buy on to pick up some CD's ect... Saw a MB Pro in the cage open box... Long story short it was missing a Battery and power cord.... After haggling with the Store manager I got it for $817 OTD.....
    It is the:
    mb133LL/a 2.4GHz, 2gb,200gb 5400 ect ect

    Went to the Apple store and used my original iPhone 100 credit and walked with charger and battery for $100 after 8% military discount. Machine runs well cycled the battery seems to have zero glitchs.

    I will try not to be a newb and ask to many question and utilize the search function.

    I am assuming I got a hell of a deal ?
    Am I able to get apple care still ?

    Thanks

    Thanks......

    I'll be looking into it tomorrow, I still have the option of Best Buys care which in someways has its advantages.

    that is the previous generation MacBook Pro look here for full specs.

    it was introduced in Feb 26 2008 so if it was in the first batches the 1 year Apple Care will run out soon. you can buy extra Apple Care before that date to add another 2 years.

    plug in your serial number here to check the full warranty information. your serial number can be found in System Profiler.

    Thanks much appreciated.... The query returned the following:
    "Our records indicate that your product is covered under Apple's Limited Warranty which is estimated to expire on March 30, 2009."

    So I am inside the time limit to aquire AppleCare extension :) I may weigh the options between BestBuys care option and the AppleCare.

    There is no choice... Get the applecare extension. You can pick it up on ebay for around $200.
