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.

                      Great support for my Apple product. Have used it with past Apple products and was extremely pleased. A tech even came to our home to repair once.
                      Well worth the investment.

                          I love B&H for the AppleCare Protection Plan! It's the same thing Apple sells in their store for a lot more money. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

                                  I've bought AppleCare for every Apple product I've owned since the late 1980s. I've had to use it several times over the years and once Apple determines they aren't being ripped off it's better than gold (unless it's a lot of gold).

                                  AppleCare has saved me thousands of dollars.

                                      If I have had any problems or questions with my Apple Computer help is just a phone call away. The Apple representatives have been courteous and informative. I never feel "foolish" about any questions that I might have.
                                      I highly recommend the Applecare Protection Plan.

                                      Tried to print copy of contract written in blue type - WHY? Black prints but blue you can hardly see words - I hope you are smart enough to fix this.

                                          I always buy AppleCare for my Apple products - it extends the warranty and tech support period and to me has always been worth it. If you have one little hardware problems these days it's very expensive to get it repaired!

                                            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.
