I'm reading up on the information right now. It says that it covers the computer, its components and included accessories, and also gives phone support and hardware coverage for three years. However, it doesn't cover anything done by accident. Personally, I've never called the HP company for support with my current notebook. I'll scrounge forums for solutions, and finding my way around software isn't usually a big deal. So, do y'all think that AppleCare is a good thing to purchase? If something blows up, wouldn't it likely occur in the first year anyway?
