Hey, I was just wondering how likely it would be that my emac will break in the next 2yrs. My coverage is almost up and I don't know if I want to spend the money on apple care. Any advice?

if you don't get apple care and it breaks you are going to wish you did have it, because anything that breaks is going to cost more then the 300 it cost for apple care, just take the precaution and get it.

2 years? - Not likely. I wouldnt buy, but its better to be safe than sorry. I'm just a type of person who likes to push the limits.

best money I ever spent, they are there for the most common sense things..which is good being fairly new to computers I neeed it Got 3 year package couple of months ago, when I bought my imac Can not say enough about them, I even feel guilty for calling so often but they take it in stride! my opinion says get it! I'm worry free knowing Apple is behind any problems.

That is a question that nobody can really answer, which is why there is the option of AppleCare... :black:
But to answer as to whether it is worth it or not....yes, it is worth the money.

I never got it. A year after the waranty expired, my Ibook went nuts (logic board). Luckily. Oh so luckily, it was covered by the ibook logic board recal. Ive had it now for 4 years, and no other problems. I will, however be getting AppleCare next time.

With AppleCare I believe you also get phone support.
