    - If I buy another MBP and want to leave it as a barebone spec/purchase as a spare machine for now, I can buy Applecare later anytime until 1 year after purchase?

    - Is there a software which would back up a complete bootable image of a Mac automatically to a network share and keep it updated on a daily basis? And if so, which is the best?

    Yes... you can buy Applecare at any point in the first year although if you want phone support, you may need to buy it then or pay for the call...

    Have a look into Superduper which (if registered) can do incremental bootable backups - given that you select the location to save to, I'd guess that it will allow you to select a network location.
