Really? You're kidding? They don't do that in the UK - and our computers cost more! Apple appear to forget an awful lot over here!Originally posted by MacBandit
They will notify you when your free year of applecare is about to run out and give you the option to extend it.
They didn't call me when mine ran out last month, and I bought my PB straight from Apple.Originally posted by gotohamish

Yeah my dad had a G3-400 Powerbook *(bronze) and it fell and the metal table went thru it's screen. The household insurance got it all fixed. It's about $40/yr in the UK. It's covered worldwide on it's travels too. Beat's Applecare!Originally posted by Somebody
Does anyone here have any experience with laptop insurance? Specifically with that provided by Safeware (http://www.safeware.com).
They're quoting me $96/year for a $3000/zero-deductable plan that covers things like theft and accidental damage, which AppleCare doesn't seem to cover. Since I made the decision to switch to a laptop as my primary computer, and probably carrying it all over with me, I've been thinking about something like this. $96/year for that level of coverage seems like a pretty good deal.
Anything I should be looking out for? Any other companies I should consider? I did some looking around via Google, and found that a fair number of apparently-reputable organizations (schools and such) recommended them.
sounds like youve had some serious issues with it. what kind of computer is it?Originally posted by HasanDaddy
I highly recommend AppleCare........
without it, I would've paid for 2 logic boards, 1 hard drive, 2 LCD screens, and 2 new casings all by myself
Yes, that's how it works.Originally posted by Kwyjibo
I just bought an ibook, I didn't opt in on the applecare but how long is the original warranty, someone mentioned opting in later how does that work? Do you get applecare included for a year then you can choose to extended it and bu ya 3 yr package?
