MacBook Ethernet Broken -Would AppleCare cover this?

    The Ethernet socket on my MacBook (purchased December 2006) has stopped working.

    It had never been particularly reliable, but because I use it every day I didn't want to send it off for repair.

    Now it has stopped working completely. I know this is hardware issue (not related to software). I know OSX inside out.

    My question is:

    If I bought a MacBook AppleCare plan, would they repair this free of charge?

    Thank you.

    It's only left my desk on about 5 occasions, and I've never given it the slightest bump.

    So, I assume that's a yes? :)

    If there is no liquid or impact damage, then yes. Buy Applecare Protection Plan on Greedbay (ebay). You can find it for about $150.

    They will fix it.

    However seeing as it is very early December 2007 you might be within the 12 month warranty that comes as standard with the computer. So I would take it into a store as soon as possible because you may not need to get applecare, although it is a sensible purchase anyway.
