    Am I right in thinking that if you buy an apple comp through the education store you get a 3 year warranty but just without the phone service for the last 2 years?? I'm going to get a new mbp when they come out but I don't want the same mistake last time and purchase it if there's no point.

    Thanks

    What? You get 3 years of phone support total if you buy AC and register it before your initial 90 days of phone support is up. Otherwise you get it for the remainer of the 3 years once you register.

    No, you get the same warranty just for 1/4 the price!

    You are correct, that if you buy your apple computer through the UK Higher Education store, you will have a standard 3 year warranty, 1 year telephone support. The Apple Care that you could buy for this system will extend your phone coverage from 1 year to 3 yrs. That is the only difference. I have posted the link to Apple's policy on this numerous times on the Buying Advice and Tips sub-forum, so if you want proof, I know for a fact its there.

    Good Luck!

    thanks, I was an idiot and paid for the phone support last time thinking I didn't get 3 years warranty... won't be doing that again!
