    I have three Macs, and I usually drop by the Apple store / Genius Bar to get things fixed, set, just out of convenience. The wait times are absurd though. Is dishing out $99 for ProCare at an Apple Store worth it? What do you guys thing? Any of you have ProCare and are pleased by the services you get in return?

    It gets me next-in-line service. If I need it once per year, and it saves me an hour... than it's easily worth $99. YMMV.

    turn around time of repair is probably the best part of it.

    I agree. I needed my MBP repaired over a weekend, since I need it for class. Purchased ProCare at the store that day, and the Geniuses put me next in line and fixed my computer that day. If I didn't get ProCare, the Genius standby queue was 4 hours and repairs were backed up for 3 days. $100, but worth it for saving me lots of time.

    It's worth it for a product at the beginning of it's life cycle (e.g., Airbook). Amuch greater chance of problems.

    Yes, you can turn up and drop in and pop in at the genius bar and covers up to three machines.
