    having my macbook air recently stolen and have bought the retina, are there any warranties that members would recommend that cover theft?

    Check with your homeowners insurance.

    Typically, warranties cover manufacturing defects. Insurance covers damage, theft, etc.

    would renter's insurance cover it if I lost it somewhere, i.e., leave my bag at starbucks, and next thing I know, no computer.

    Only way to find out is to call YOUR insurance company.

    If your home owners or renter does not have a ryder for the most likely wont be covered.

    They have all told you to check with your homeowners insurance. Renter's insurance should be fine, but make sure you find out about what a claim will do to your rates.

    Depends on the policy. But honestly, you wouldn't want to file a claim for such a small item. It will jack up your costs over the next few years and your provider might even drop you.

    I just added coverage to my Geico for $21 a year. Theft, loss, damage, etc $0 deductible.

    Why not google 'renters insurance florida'?

    I personally don't care to cover individual items. When we got my wedding rings (which cost a lot more than my macbook), we looked into covering them by our homeowners insurance and it was pretty pricey to do it, so we said screw it. I figure whatever happens, happens.

    Get several quotes, check the deductable, and make sure they know about and will cover your pricier items.

    A lot of credit cards have theft/damage coverage but typically they only last the first 90 days or so. That might be an option that you could utilize for the time being.

    Funny they would not insure the ipad without a long list of exclusions that made it useless.

    I've been looking at this company. I checked them out and it seems legit. My retina will be here next week and I will likely add this coverage.
