    My MacBook is 11 months old, so I'm looking at extending the warranty to 3 years through Applecare. It's $249 through Apple, but only $200 if purchased from Amazon. I've heard stories of it being harder to register via the Amazon route (no way to register online, for example).

    Anyone purchase Applecare through Amazon and been happy with it?

    But it from Amazon.

    Unless you buy it from Apple at the same time as your computer purchase (in which case they auto-enroll) it doesn't matter where you buy it from after the fact.

    Amazon's AppleCare will register online just like anyone else's (inluding Apple).

    Buy it on eBay. You'll get a great deal, and it's all the same, doesn't matter where you buy it.
