You can never tell what is going to happen. I do not usually buy extended warranties on anything, but, my ibook lost it's hard drive last week after thirteen months. If I did not have Applecare it would have cost about 350.00 to fix. You should also consider Procare. Among it's many benefits is priority repair. Assuming you have an Apple store near you you would get it back from repair within two working days.

I'll most likely get it. Kind of made me mad today. I wasn't able to make my bluetooth work so I take it in to the Mac place where I bought it. they have some awesome techs there too. But.... the kid that looked at it this morning (with me standing there) tried getting the bluetooth to sync with a mouse and keyboard and nothing. So, he thought it was a faulty bluetooth and so I checked the ibook in for them to fix. The ibook is about 6 months old.
I pick it up later on in the day when another tech said that nothing was wrong with the bluetooth and that it was working fine. He showed me and yup, it seemed to be working. They charged me 50.00 and I asked why. He said that there was no parts to be replaced and the warranty is only for parts NOT for time worked on.
Is this true?? The warranty doesn't cover for time worked on?
