    So, I got a used MacBook Pro, and my warranty expires soon.

    The original owner had no problems with it, nothing was replaced or anything.

    Do you think it's worth it to get Apple Care? Will I run into problems, since nothing was repaired within the first year.

    Thanks.

    Yes, but don't buy AC from Apple - you can find it for a lot less in other places, like Amazon, eBay, etc.

    I wouldn't buy an Apple notebook without AppleCare. One major problem and it's paid for.

    Ya, they're on eBay for around $230.

    I guess I'll get it.

    Check the Apple Education Store online if you qualify. It's discounted heavily there, too.

    You said there was nothing wrong during the first year; if that first year has already passed, you cannot buy AppleCare.

    If it hasn't passed, I'd get AppleCare. Any repair will pay itself over with AppleCare.

    Well then get it now and register it immediately. If it breaks the day your AppleCare expires, you'll want to shank a b**ch
