    Hello guys

    I am hoping to get some advice from you guys. I am about to purchase a new 4G 8GB Nano and I want to know should I go ahead and purchase the applecare? Is it worth the extra $39? It is for 2 years of care and I just wonder is the battery likely to die with in that time so that I would need the applecare? Can someone tell me if applecare covers accidental damage like dropping or water? Have most you guys bothered with the applecare for a nano?

    Correct, with all new ipods purchased through apple comes with a 1 year warranty. No need for applecare IMO

    Thanks for response

    You are right - the nano comes with 1 year of warranty. So the applecare basically extends it to a total of 2 years. So I guess you are paying $39 for one additional year. I wonder is anything likely to go wrong by the end of the second year?

    AppleCare extended the 1 year warranty to 2. It will NOT cover accidental or water damage.

    You're better off buying it with a credit card that offers extended warranty for free (or included with the annual fee). All American Express charge cards offer this, as does many "premium" Visa and Mastercard credit cards.
