    Hi all

    After waiting for more then 12 weeks for my imac, I decided to cancel my order in my country
    and just order from US.

    The only thing I need to solve is the apple care issue.

    Can someone explain to me what package to buy ?

    I see many on eBay, the people who sell them say it is suited to any imac.
    Is that correct?
    I see that on the package there is Imac logo. is it indeed cover any Imac ?
    or it is tailored to specif model?

    There is just one price for all iMacs. However, there are different contracts/prices for other Apple products. Note also that AppleCare contracts are country-specific. Here's a pertinent quote from the AppleCare FAQ:
    Are you buying directly from Apple, or from another source? If you do buy from Apple, buy AppleCare with the system purchase and you'll automatically be registered.

    Since AppleCare is a contract between you and Apple, be careful of whether it's a legitimate contract. Me? I wouldn't purchase it from anyone who's not Apple-authorized (see above). A "deal" probably isn't.

    When I buy apple care what is the procedure after the buy?
    What I need to give?
    ( address? Or just computer serial number?)

    Apple will want more than your serial number for registration.

    Are you worried about telling Apple what country you live in? That you'll be denied service if you're outside the U.S.? Read the AppleCare agreement.

    Apple provides service where you are currently located. It doesn't matter where you purchased the Apple equipment, it's where you are when that equipment needs service and support that counts.
