Is it worth the extra money to get the extended warrenty with my new comp?

If you are buying a laptop, I definitely believe it's worth it, mine has already paid for itself, more than a few times. My powerbook had to have over $3,000 in repair for a pretty rare problem, and because I had applecare I didnt have to pay a cent. The applecare has been the absolute best thing I have purchased for my computer.

Yes, it is recommend and you are buying an iMac if i am right, then it is only $169.00. So that is not a lot of money for a FULL 3 year protection for the product.

I would recommend it highly.

You have a whole year to decide. You dont have to buy it at the same time you get the new hardware. That's what I'm doing. I just paid almost $2k for 2 new macs, I cringe at the thought of another $350-400 for applecare at the outset. Will ante up in a few months though.

well im getting my computer and anything else with a military discount of 17 percent off so I may as well get it now since the offer expires soon. I think its probably best to get it too. Thanks :)

I think its better to get it and hope you never need it, rather than not get it and wish you did. Plus youre getting a discount so you cant beat that.

I say yes. I bought it for my MacBook Pro. Besides the fact that if something goes wrong with your computer Apple will fix it for free, I think that it provides a sort of reassurance. Knowing that it's covered by a warranty makes you feel a little better since you know that it's no big deal if it were to break. It's like purchasing an extended warranty for your vehicle.

With the 17 percent discount you should buy it.
