    I wanted to know if anyone has successful pnd apple and was able to pair their apple care with their mac after the 1 year warranty that comes with your mac. See what happened is that I bought my mac from COMPUSA, not a good idea in retrospect but since they have gone out of business their warranty program blows. So I got an apple care but got it after the one year period. Is there any way to convince apple to fix my computer for free even though i am past the warranty period.

    None. I feel for you about CompUSA - lots of folks have been taken to the cleaners for purchasing CompUSA extended warranties not knowing they were going out business.

    Regards.

    I bought a Mac at CompUSA, kept trying to walk out of the business section without buying AppleCare -- waited until they finally tossed in a deal on that in addition to the memory.

    Sort of sucks that you have to go directly through Assurant to get service, but they might have a local drop off besides the old closed CompUSA

    Edit: watch it'll be somebody even worse like Circuit City.

    Any APPs purchased after the one year period will NOT be activated by Apple. Sorry.

    As for getting your computer fixed - find out if your issue is covered even if out of warranty (there are a number of issues with the Macbook that ARE covered even if you're out of warranty). A simple quick call to AppleCare can easily find this out.

    yea so I live in Hawaii so I really don't have a drop off location any place near. I have gotten my macbook replaced already but there is something else wrong with the logic board that apple has already diagnosed but every time i sent it to the repair center they come up with nothing. it is really starting to irritate me.
    anyways what things from apple are covered outside the extended warranty. i have already had the crack replaced outside the warrenty, but what else? so i can go and have them fix as much as i can.

    That unfortunately goes beyond my NDA that I believe I am still under (I no longer work as a Technical Support Rep). As I said - just give AppleCare a call and see what they can do.
