    Probably not. Have you read this? AppleCare basically extends your standard hardware warranty from one year to three years. You can purchase it at any stage of the first year in which you have your MacBook. It's a basic warranty service, not an insurance policy. :)

    Is there anything like this? I would be willing to pay. I am a 15 year old kid and I try to keep my stuff all nice but it always ends of breaking :(.

    Well if you really trow hard, you might be able to stop yourself from damaging it. Maybe talk to a local insurance company about getting it covered. Talk to your parents about what's covered in their home & contents insurance. :)

    Regular household insurance policy? Talk to your dad.

    EDIT: Nope, I don't have any Jewish Candy... (Mad Jew beats me to it as usual).

    I'd suggest the Applecare anyways as a *just in case* measure if something goes wrong with it. But know that you'll be covered for the first year, so maybe save for it and get it in 10 months or so after buying it.

    Speaking of which, I need to get mine before 6/6. *CRAP*
