    April 3rd is my final day to buy Applecare for my iPad as it is for everyone who bought one on release day.

    I also have been offered to purchase "Black Tie Service" from Geek Squad at Best Buy... 1 year for 89.99 or 219.99 for 2 more years. The difference is I think Best Buy covers the battery.

    I've used my iPad this whole time with no issues... but peace of mind is always a good thing.
    What do you all think? Should I get one of the 3 or none at all?

    1 Year Applecare (68 bucks at Amazon)
    1 Year Best Buy "Black Tie" (90 dollars)
    2 Year Best Buy "Black Tie" (220 dollars - kind of pricey)

    AppleCare covers the battery. Between the two, I recommend AppleCare because I'd rather be at the hands of Apple than Best Buy if I want to get anything done.
