I'm about to purchase my first Mac (assuming the new airs ever come out) and I'm pumped. That being said, I have a question about AppleCare. I planned on purchasing AppleCare with my new computer because it's a large investment, and I would rather be safe than sorry. But I read somewhere in one of these forums that there is a manufacturers warranty for the first year, so AppleCare may not be necessary until the expiration of the manufacturers warranty. Is this true? Any other advice regarding AppleCare would be much appreciated! Thanks!
