    I just bought a macbook pro about a month ago. If i buy apple care after the regular 1 year warranty, will i get 3 additional years or 2?

    2. It's pretty plainly spelled out on their site: http://www.apple.com/support/products/mac.html

    You have 1 year to buy AppleCare which will add an additional 2 years of coverage for a total of 3 years....

    I would purchase AppleCare asap because you get extended phone support beyond the standard 90 days. This can be a life saver sometimes saving you a trip to an apple store.

    Applecare is such a waste of money. Apple pushes applecare sales harder than anything else to their floor employees. You can see the grimace on their faces when you decline it. It's just like that additional insurance they try to sell you when you rent a vehicle at Enterprise. Their whole business model is based off of how much they can sell, simply because its profitable.

    Then again, I just replaced my ram, an HDD and replaced my optibay drive w/ the OEM HD. I shouldn't assume people can learn to troubleshoot their own issues and use google. :cool:
