    If it were desktop computer, I would probably not purchase an extended warranty, but for notebook computers, iPod Touch, flat screen display, I wouldn't hesitate to buy this extended coverage, especially when it's 30% cheaper than MSRP. what bargain!

    I have owned several PowerBooks/iBooks and have purchased applecare for all of them (in comparison, haven't bought AppleCare for desktop). If you have even one repair on one of these things out of warranty, you will make up your purchase price. and for items that have little ventilation/heat sinking capabilities (laptops, iPod Touch, etc), risk of something going bad within 3years is pretty high. I have had to get my Powerbook repaired three times (bad optical drive, bad keyboard buttons, etc), iBook once (case cracking, dead HDD), iPod Touch twice due to bad battery life and intermittent power, and the display repaired (power mangement unit died). Every time either Apple would repair it, or replace the unit with either new or refurbished unit, no questions asked (unless there is obvious signs of abuse). You can take it to any Apple Store, or call their 1800 number and have them send you a shipping box. Turn around is typically 3-4 days (!!) from the time you call them and have your part back in your hands.

    Included in the hardware warranty is if you have any Apple OS issues or Apple software install/operation issues during the warranty period, you can get free service via phone to help you fix the problem. Best service ever.

    I now have 3 fairly new apple products and thought I'd better get it t if I need help on something one day. So far I've been able take care of questions on my own. I think that for a laptop you might need more help than with the other products. It's a good three years and BH takes out a bit of the sting with their better price.

    Lower price w/o tax rocks

    Will I ever use it.....?

        Light, fast and fantastic images

        By Jess

        from New York

        Comments about AppleCare Protection Plan for 15" & 17" MacBook Pro & 15" MacBook Pro with Retina Display:

        I had a slight bump setting it up. All the wordings and instructions were all over the place and I have to wing it to get to the end. For a moment I was goin to exchange it for another but since I got the AppleCare, I figured I'll test it out for a few weeks or months before I turned it in. It's about 2 weeks and it's fast, light and gave fantastic images. I upgraded from a 7yr old Windows laptop running on Windows 7 and damn...the MacBook is as if I joined the 21st century of computing. :) I don't have to wait 10 mins for my laptop to wake up or turn on. No stalling sleeping mode and images on the screen are so much mores defined and colorful then I am used to. On top of that, the sound is clear and there's no way I can accidentally muffled it because it's placed beside the keyboards facing up. I have yet to install windows because my work does require windows function but I want to hold onto to it being Mac as long as possible until my windows laptop died and I have to start using the Mac for work. No regrets so far switching over.

          It's pretty obvious that most of users can't fix the retina MacBook Pro on their own. It's too locked down. The other ting is AppleCare on laptops will pay for its self in the first repair. If anything breaks or malfunctions, it's going to cost a whole LOT more.

              Very happy with the purchase (a tad bummed by the delay in delivery). This is my first Apple computer and I'm happy I waited for a year before going for AppleCare - seamless way to extend warranty for another 2 years. Hassle free activation.Highly recommended!

                            Basically you just register one code in the package on Apple's website and you now have an extra two years of coverage. I always get Applecare because I drive my Macs into the ground. I've always had to use it, sometimes multiple times to fix those dastardly issues that creep up within the last three months of that three year warranty.

                                          Great price, authentic product, quick delivery! Easy AppleCare registration to extend warranty and support for 2 more years after original warranty.

                                          Once the Mac (serial number) is registered, the box can be disregarded as warranty coverage and information is saved online and is not required when service/support is needed.

                                                          Everyone has their own opinion regarding extended warranties. Mine is this one is totally worth the cost just to have access to the Apple support techs. Given this is an Apple product, I expect not to have any problems with the computer hardware, (one never knows though); but as new MAC users my wife and I have LOTS of questions regarding the applications. The techs could not be more friendly, nor more helpful and we have called them a bunch of times. And, they are all located right here in the US!

                                                          I am also very pleased with B & H. Extensive product selection, great prices, and wonderful service. I couldn't be happier with the whole experience!!
