    if you get Apple Care, everything s covered under one receipt at time of purchase. If you buy later, they won't be covered.

    IMO ... stuff like wireless keyboard and track pad you do not need ... however get an external HD for Time Machine from another place for cheaper.

    Time Machine is a must :cool:

    Also, if you need help setting up your new accessories, then the folks at the store can help. Saying you cannot hookup a wireless keyboard or a magic trackpad. :)

    Yes, buy an external hard drive to backup your goodies as they pay dividends.

    I think that you do get a discount on printers if you buy it with your MBP. Also you get the free shipping.

    ps if u're getting the HE discount, you also get 11% off apple accessories

    i became heavily reliant on my trackpad and wireless keyboards (as pain from using macbook keyboard diggin into my wrists...grrr)

    i was told to the contrary; apple sales@ regent st branch said that
    that the apple care would not cover the peripherals

    however, when i faced a few difficulties pairing the wireless keyboard + mouse on windows, i cheekily rang apple, and they walked me thro the set-up

    Both are wrong.

    Apple will generally cover any accessories through the length of the warranty of your computer even if they aren't purchased at the same time. Examples would be Airport Extreme routers, keyboards, etc.
