my 1 year warranty is almost up on my rmbp 15 but i still don't know if i should get applecare it hasnt showed any signs of slowing down or failing on me in the future. none of the IR issues has shown signs since i have the samsung display. my drive is samsung and not toshiba or hitachi like some others may have everything seems to be in good, stable condition im pretty good with my electronics. i have never purchased extra warranty coverage on any fo my electronics and have had very good luck so far. not sure if its just me taking good care of them or getting lucky with the right products. reading through the forums, it seems like everyone else has issues with theirs which makes me wonder if it'll ever happen to me..?
