      A Must-Have For Any Mac

      I recently bought a used iMac and it was still under it's 1-year warranty, so I opted for the extra protection of AppleCare. This is the second iMac I have owned.

      The first was an iMac G5. First off, this was a great computer and I used it A LOT the first three years while doing freelance design work while in school. In that time, which was thankfully covered by AppleCare, I had the power supply unit replaced, the SuperDrive go bad, and then a hard drive die. AppleCare made the replacements and repairs quick and easy.

      I used it for nearly 6 years before it finally died on me (the dreaded G5 bulging capacitors, eek!), and had to wait several months before I could afford another.

      Knowing no computer is invincible, I get AppleCare just in case. It covers such a range of hardware troubles that the extra cash is worth the time and money saved in the event of problems. Not only is it a good value, but the AppleCare reps are friendly and helpful.

      Don't skimp on this -- buy it straight away when you get a new Mac. Even if you get a used Mac and it is still in it's first year, it is eligible for AppleCare, so don't leave B&H without it in your cart.

      When I finally go on a rage spree because I can't send files larger than 32 gigabytes from my Mac to my Windows environment, this service plan is going to be really helpful in repairing the machine.

      Unless that's not covered, it comes on a disk, I haven't read it.

                AppleCare is great. I was on edge back when I had a MacBook but by the end of my two years (after first year) it definitely paid for itself when I had repairs done. As much as I'm hoping nothing happens to my new iMac, it's nice to know I can rely on Apple!

                The price on BHPHOTO was the best! Thanks!

                  I have purchased many macs over the years, and never forgo AppleCare. If just one thing goes wrong with the computer, it pays for itself. The customer service is excellent, and if they cannot fix the problem, they replace the computer.
                  It's a no-brainer in my estimation.

                              Getting Apple Care with a new Apple computer from B&H is a great value! Even though Apple products are extremely well built and reliable, electronics fail and when they do you will be glad you purchased Apple Care!

                                    I highly recommend purchasing this product if you are buying a new, just released, model. You never know what bugs might show up after a year or so. Especially recommended on the new iMacs since they have to be completely disassembled to get to the hard drive if it craps out on you. I understand that the screen has to be "unglued" to get inside. Apple did away with the magnet type used on earlier models.

                                          Apple is great for support. You pay maybe 25% more of the computer's worth for it, right? So might as well opt to extend the care another 2.75 years with AppleCare.
