Does it make sense to get AppleCare now or wait until I get close to the one year point? Also, do most people recommend getting it? I bought an i5 iMac about a month ago. I haven't had any problems. I usually don't buy extended warranties on anything, since it usually doesn't pay and it is better to just stash that money you would have spent away in an emergency fund. However, I have been seriously considering it for the iMac since it is not as easy to service as a regular desktop.
