Oh, I'm pretty much in *favour* of buying AppleCare...thanks, that's one less reason to buy applecare
There are other reasons to buy Applecare, there are plenty of logic board failures out there as well as bad lcd screens pay the extra cash for Applecare now otherwise paying upwards of around $900.00 for a new screen could fall on you to pay instead of Apple.thanks, that's one less reason to buy applecare
AppleCare covers all defects related to the unit, all included accessories, as well as accessories purchased after the fact (that are Apple-branded, such as AirPort accessories, keyboards, and mice, for example). The only two items AppleCare does not cover are batteries over a year old and user-inflicted abuse, accidental or not.There's another thread in which someone discusses the Best Buy warranty and how slow they are at repairs. I'm not sure if this reply belongs in here or over there, but it's worth noting that despite Futureshop and Best Buy being slow on repairs, they do have one BIG advantage over Applecare. Their warranty DOES cover batteries for the full 3 years (including loss of performance), as well as all other accessories, like the power cord, remote, keyboard, mouse, etc.
That's my point exactly... they cover DEFECTS. What I said is FS and BB cover PERFORMANCE. I have had my keyboard replaced twice just because the keys got sticky. If the battery lasts 2 hours instead of the usual 3+ hours, I get it replaced. If the buttons on the remote stop working EVEN FROM WEAR AND TEAR they will replace it.AppleCare covers all defects related to the unit
