Hi I will be purchasing a MacBook Pro very soon. I am still deciding whether or not I should purchase AppleCare and would like to know what everybody thinks about it? I take really good care of my Laptops, have used many PC's without ever running into any hardware problems. I have read several threads about how AppleCare totally saved people several hundred bucks. So I want to see if I would need it. I'll be keeping the macbook at home most of the time. How common is it for MacBooks to run into Hardware failure? I keep reading these stories about people running into hardware trouble after a few months and I just don't want it to happen to me. I'm stuck in a place where I feel like Apple is forcing me to purchase AppleCare... Sorry if this is in the wrong trend, I'm not a fanboy of any kind, I'm just a person ready to make a huge purchase and would not like to have any regrets afterward. [UPDATE] OK, I'm pretty convinced that from reading the response that AppleCare is gonna be a necessity for a MacBook. Here's another question, what if my laptop dies after the 3 year AppleCare runs out, am I able to still purchase another AppleCare on ebay? and stay covered?
