Hi All

I have recently purchased my first ever Mac and lovely 17" Macbook Pro. I also purchased the AppleCare warranty.
I really need to insure the MBP but don't want to add it to my home insurance, can anyone recommend a specialist laptop insurer in the UK?
I have found several companies offering insurance but have no idea if they are reputable or not, and I don't want to find out they are not during a claim!

Thanks

Try some of the well known insurers for a quote.

Your house contents insurers may do one.

Why do you not want to add it to your home insurance? I have a zero deductible on some of my electronics such as MacBook and iPhone. Costs an extra $25 a year.
