    didn't know about that...
    I like the idea though...so if I ever decided to sell my macbook I can get a refund and register my (new hypothetically purchased) macbook pro by spending the extra bucks?

    You won't necessarily get a full refund. They will refund you for the unused portion.

    Yeah, I was offered that option when I had my computer replaced under warranty. Problem was, I'd bought AppleCare about 2 weeks prior, but the prorated refund was based on the original warranty date a year earlier. I would've had to pay an extra $60 to repurchase it for my new machine, which I thought was a bit absurd. I just transferred it instead, so I had a year less AppleCare than I would've had if I'd waited, but I don't expect problems.

    It would have been definitely worth it to pay the extra $60

    Yeah, $60 bucks for two additional years of apple care (it's three years total, right?) if it costs, what, $350 or so bucks for three years - over $100 a year - then $30 a year is a pretty huge savings.

    I agree...with notebooks you never know when the next hardware problem is around the corner...

    Any product service contract (commonly referred to as extended warranties) offer a pro rated refund. In fact, it is mandated in about 23 states. Some states allow claims paid to be deducted from the refund amount, some don't.
