Next Tuesday will be the end of my first year of warranty. I haven't had any problems so far. After I purchased my Macbook, I swore to myself I would buy applecare. But I've been having second thoughts about it because I'm a bit tight on money (college). If my Macbook has been working perfectly for this past year, what are the chances that it will fail on me later? Also, I've been reading a lot of people saying "applecare was a lifesaver for me...blah blah." But is there anyone who has bought applecare but never used it on a laptop? Lastly, I hear that credit card companies usually double the warranties provided by the manufacturer. I think I used an AMEX card. Perhaps this second year provided by my credit card company is enough? So what should I do? All help is greatly appreciated.
