    How we employ the product. As toward eventual resale value, were insuring our present use and value added in the time when we might wish to purchase another new model from B&H. Our end customer has the value of the remaining peace of mine whichthis coverage provides due to transferability. Good to know that the company behind coverages is avaible right away, through phone support, then down the road just in case of repair needs. What was great about us getting the service contract had been the veryco operative sales personal at B&H. [...] Again had phone support the day our coverage started. Not sure what we`d call not so great about it?

    The bribe to keep macs working

    Since parts are not actually available for public, you have to pay this bribe to have your mac fixed at a reasonable price.

        Applecare is a small price to pay to extend tech support for your apple computers/products. I've had numerous occasions when Applecare saved my figurative behind.

          Comments about AppleCare Protection Plan for Mac mini:

          I always buy AppleCare with my Apple products. It gives great peace of mind and increases the resale in the event I want to upgrade before the three year mark. However, I've never needed to use the AppleCare because Apple hardware tend to be so well built (Macbooks, Cinema displays, and Mac Minis). Still, I wouldn't hesitate because, for the price, you can't beat that kind of service. B&H's pricing and free shipping made this an extremely easy decision!

              ...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.

                                      Picking up AppleCare with a computer purchase and paying 1/3 of retail? What's not to like? I just bought my first Mac (Mini), so it's nice to have the peace of mind of the extended warranty.

                                        Great deal through B&H! Kudos to B&H for offering a package deal that was much better than the Apple site. Love B&H, really, better pricing, excellent packaging and very good customer service.I always buy the Apple Care for my Apple products. I have had to use Apple care upon several occasions and it has saved me far more than the purchase price of the warranty.Apple is excellent as well. I have been using Apple products for over 20 years and when I had a "lemon" mac book, after the 3rd time having to have it repaired, two of those incidence were bad logic boards, Apple gave me not just a new Macbook, but a much newer model.If you have a problem take it [*] after making an appointment and speak to their techs with appreciation and respect and they will do the same for you.

                                              You don't really realize the value of a warranty until you need it. For a small additional fee, it is nice to insure that your machine cannot fail and cost you money.

                                                    Since parts are not actually available for public, you have to pay this bribe to have your mac fixed at a reasonable price.

                                                      just like any insurance, you hope you never have to use it.

                                                          Obtaining the Apple Care Protection Plan from a source other that Apple is a real bargain. No hassle, no delay--just a prompt and efficient execution of my order. I'm highly motivated to continue to use B&H as my favored source of photo and electronic equipment and supplies.
