    I forgot to get AppleCare for my MacBook Pro and am now two days out of warranty with nothing. Will Apple let me buy it still?

    I wouldn't really say no. Yes they don't have to. But Apple is usually pretty nice about doing things like this. I say give them a call or go into a store and see what they can do.

    You can buy AppleCare whenever you want, but won't be able to use it to get repairs on your Mac since you're past the 1 year mark.

    Apple Care After One year
    You can buy applecare after one year
    Apple Care after 1 Year?


    So the OP can Apple Care whenever s/he wants, but to cover an Apple product with it, it has to be purchased within the first year since the purchase of the product to be protected with it.

    Or as milesE put it:

    Depends if they're feeling nice today or not. I'd give it a try :D

    Unrelated to this question but I seen on some of them other threads people said that if you buy though the Education store in the UK you get 3 year hardware warranty.

    Is this still true?

    OP: If you bought your computer entirely with your CC, check to see if you have Purchase Guard as part of your card benefits. It will extend the manufacturer's warranty by a year (at least for my CC)

    Unfortunately mine doesn't... I need to get a card that does!

    I called and I wasn't :D

    They were! The guy talked to his manager and ended up letting me buy the warranty with my student discount. This is why I buy Apple :apple:

    Congratulations then. I just installed some negativity to your thinking to be successful. Reverse psychology or something like that. :D

    good to hear OP.

    i don't know why everyone said that Apple would do nothing. it was only a few days, not like it was a month later.

    after all, they ARE getting money out of it, so why would they say no lol ;)

    that is cool. Also, if you have renters' insurance, you can add computers (for a small annual fee) for full replacement. Mine is like $20 a year, and covers EVERYTHING. I also have AC
