    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.....?

                ...especially for CA residents and for now is my go-to place to purchase AppleCare.
                (Sigh). It used to be that you didn't need AppleCare for Apple desktops, so I previously got only for laptops and iOS devices. But Apple's quality controlled has slipped over the decade, so now I buy AppleCare for everything (including one macMini and and iMac). I'd say overall that we've broken even in dollars and come out ahead where the hassle factor is concerned.

                    Can't beat this deal on bonafide AppleCare Protection. I've tried other protection plans but always come back to Apple. For one, some other protection plans will stick you when they say, "replace with like kind"-- which could mean a PC with same RAM and features as your MacBook or other Apple product. With AppleCare you have the confidnce of always knowing you will have Apple products and parts.

                    I'm really happy that I bought this apple care from this site because I saved like $ bucks as compared to Apple site. Straightforward registration took me about 5 minutes or less and shipping was fast. Thank you very much.If you still haven't bought yours. Buy it, it's the real thing. And you'll be saving some money. :)

                      Yes it's an expensive gamble, but the 1st repair on a mac within the 1st 3 years is usually going to be more than or at least almost as much as it costs to buy the AppleCare. It is a lot cheaper from B&H than on other sites or directly from Apple.

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

                      I always kind of thought apple care was a hoax but my friends have sworn by how essential it is as a Mac owner. I just recently bought a 15" Macbook Pro and had some issues downloading software and getting my user account to work properly. Applecare made it incredibly easy to get someone on the phone with me in under 10 minutes to walk me through the problem. With ease I was using my computer and I didn't even have to travel to a store to get the help I needed. If something really big goes wrong Applecare comes through like this I am sure I will be satisfied.

                      The only pain point was when I was registering I had a hard time figuring out how to verify my purchase since I bought the computer from B&H. It took some emails with apple but when all was said an done it wasn't too complicated to get worked out.

                                    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!

                                                I haven't had to use AppleCare yet, but B&H's service in getting the product to me was great. Good price and fast shipping and delivery. Once you get the box, you just enter a code and you're all set. Very easy.

                                                        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.
