If you can get it outside UK, it will be cheaper. I'm in Hong Kong and the apple care for rMBP 15" costs only GBP 185. See if you can get someone to bring you one from here. :D

You don't need to physically bring it, right? You can just have somebody buy one for you and activate it with your serial number.

Similar question: If somebody else gets you AppleCare (say they are eligible for student pricing), can you still use it on your own computer?

I know that's getting close to fraud in moral sense, but as long as AppleCare is bound to serial number, not person, it shouldn't be a problem, right?

Thanks for your replies. Will try and sort something out. Cheapest place I've seen it is £209. Apple Education is around £195.

I second Amazon....Got mine from there and it was fine. I think I paid £179 for it for a 15" mac book pro. When the packaging arrived, it was in Italian but when I activated it (on the phone), there was no problem and the guy I was speaking to assured me it was fine.

I don't even think Apple mind if you find it cheaper somewhere, as long as you're not pretending to be a student when you're not or something.
