4-0 out of 5 stars ??
Why on earth would anyone buy applecare from amazon.com? I mean, really, come on.

2-0 out of 5 stars Question is, who serves who?
Be prepared to hear Apple's Service Representative tell you that, "Amazon is not an authorized reseller" and that you must fax them a copy of your sales/shipping document, and also fax them a copy of the enrollment number of the service plan along with its bar code (which is on one of the sheets of paper inside the "protection plan" package).

If you have a fax machine at your fingertips, I guess this isn't a really big deal, but if you don't, and if you are handicapped and can only walk with great difficulty, you might decide the whole thing really isn't worth the hassle.

Also be prepared to read your iPods serial number which is indistinctly, dimly, and microscopically etched into the backside of your machine. My tired, old eyes required my best magnifying glass with intense light to make it out, and even then I managed to mistake 2 Qs for Os on my first attempt.

On my first request for service I found the iPod representative to be pleasant enough, even affable; but, upon reflection I realized that other than to recite the things I must FAX to them, she hadn't so much as given me the time of day, let alone an answer to the question I had asked her.

2-0 out of 5 stars Expensive, limited coverage
Considering that this policy only extends the warranty for one year, it is expensive. Coverage for the iPod's biggest problem, its battery, is vague. Apple simply defines as non-defects some apparent battery problems, such as the fact that the battery drains very rapidly when the unit is not in use and turned off. Plus, the battery can drop drastically in usage time, and Apple protects itself by saying this: "Service coverage is available ... for battery depletion of 50 percent or more from original specification." What other company clearly states that precipitous product failure is not covered by either the original or extended warranty?

5-0 out of 5 stars For just Pennies a day....Peace of Mind!
The iPod and iTunes redefine what digital music should be: great audio on a superlight device with stunning design, fast download speeds, and ample storage for your music collection. Now, with the AppleCare Protection Plan for iPod, you can be sure that your music will play on.

One number to call for world-class support
Because Apple creates both the iPod and iTunes, they form a truly integrated digital music solution. If you ever have a question about their use, you'll have direct telephone access to Apple's own technical support group-the people who know iPod and iTunes best. AppleCare representatives can help troubleshoot your iPod and its connection with iTunes.

Apple offers the same complete service for both Mac and Windows users.

Investment protection
Every iPod comes standard with 90 days of phone support and one year of hardware service coverage.The AppleCare Protection Plan extends your service and support coverage for your iPod, its included accessories, and iTunes to up to two years from the original purchase date of your iPod.With this plan, you get direct access to Apple experts for answers by phone and anytime access to web-based resources. If your iPod or the included accessories should need service, Apple-certified technicians will repair it or provide a replacement using genuine Apple parts.

It's recommended that you purchase the AppleCare Protection Plan with your new iPod to take maximum advantage of the coverage the plan provides. This comprehensive plan is available for all iPod models, within their one-year limited warranty, that connect to either Macintosh computers or Windows PCs.

Peace of mind at home or on the road
With the iPod, you can take your entire music collection everywhere you go. But should your iPod need service, the AppleCare Protection Plan gives you the peace of mind of knowing that Apple provides global repair or replacement coverage.

All this for just pennies a day! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars For just Pennies a day....Excellent 3yr. Support !
Excellent add-on to your Apple CPU purchase.

The AppleCare Protection Plan is a uniquely integrated service and support solution that extends the complimentary coverage on your Mac to three years from the computer's purchase date. This comprehensive plan includes expert telephone assistance, onsite repairs for desktop computers, global repair coverage for portable computers, web-based support resources, and powerful diagnostic tools - all for one economical price.

Purchase the AppleCare Protection Plan when you purchase your Apple system to take maximum advantage of the coverage the plan provides. If you don't do it now, then you will want to buy it before your 1yr warranty expires - otherwise it's too late to do so.

Three years of security
Every Mac comes with 90 days of telephone support and one year of service coverage at an Apple-authorized repair center. By purchasing the AppleCare Protection Plan with your Mac, you can extend your coverage to three years from the computer's purchase date.

Comprehensive coverage
The AppleCare Protection Plan covers your Mac, as well as an AirPort Card or AirPort Extreme Card, an AirPort Extreme Base Station, and Apple RAM used with your Mac. Power Mac and PowerBook customers may also enroll one Apple display for coverage, provided that the Mac and the display are purchased together.

One number to call for help
Get direct telephone access to Apple's own technical support group, the people who know your system best. Because Apple creates the computer, the operating system, and many built-in applications, the Mac is a truly integrated system. Just one phone call can help resolve most issues with your Mac because AppleCare representatives can help troubleshoot Apple hardware, the Mac operating system, and many Apple consumer applications, including iCal, iSync, iDVD, iMovie, iPhoto, iTunes, AppleWorks, and QuickTime.

Convenient repair options
The AppleCare Protection Plan ensures that Apple-certified technicians will perform repairs using genuine Apple parts. With this plan, parts and labor will be covered for three years from the date of purchase of your Apple computer, two years beyond the one-year limited warranty. The plan includes onsite service for desktop computers and global repair coverage for portables, which can be very important if you travel abroad.

For just pennies a day - it's great insurance! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Very unimpressed
As far as getting 2 extra years of warranty and support goes, I suppose this isn't a bad package. But I felt let down by the telephone support side. I'm told that there are call centres in three countries and the one you get depends on the time you phone. I think I'll phone at a different time next time!
My iMac is only three months old but unfortunately I've had to contact AppleCare already after my Superdrive started doing something odd.
I listened to distorted music for thirty minutes before a human finally spoke to me. Sadly, their English was so poor I could barely understand a thing they said and we had to repeat ourselves over and over. After making me do things I'd already done to try to resolve the problem (obvious things), they very quickly admitted defeat and said I'd have to take my iMac to the local Apple service centre. Once there, the cure was pathetically simple and should have been diagnosed by Apple Care. If it had been, I wouldn't have had to take my machine to the repair centre.
Apple describes Apple Care as a "world class" telephone help service. I'd say it's one of the worst I've ever used in my life.
Still, it's probably worthwhile for the extra two years' warranty. Just pray you never need to call on them!

1-0 out of 5 stars Cost of Repairs
Apple just replaced the CRT (display) on my eMac under warranty. The cost without warranty would have been 486.56 dollars. This is over 50 percent of the cost of the computer! That would have been great except the CRT is still not working properly.... If you must own an Apple, you want this warranty. It is 50 dollars just to talk to AppleCare after 90 days. Me, I am going back to my Dell. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend
If you have a mac/apple, you must buy this protection plan or the first time something wrong happens, YOU will need to pay for it. While the problems in macs are lesser than PCs, there is the occassional problem. I highly recommend being insured with this plan. Over the past year, I have used it twice, and it's $50 a call without it so it's really worth the money! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars worth its weight in Wozinaks!
The only way you can even get an AppleCare warranty for a display is when either the display is part of the Mac (such as iMac and eMac), or when the display and Mac are purchased at the same time. Apple is the only company I know of that offers a 3 year protection plan for monitors! Even the flat panel displays! That alone is worth the warranty.

Things happen - power spikes, magnetic fields, just about anything and poof - your data is gone or worse - your machine no longer functions! I am the Mac support person where I work and rarely run into major problems, but when I am stumped, I am so glad I can call AppleCare.

The folks who answer the phone are never in a hurry - they are patient, friendly and sympathetic. They will spend hours if needed, in helping you diagnose the cause of a problem you're having and if needed, they will give you a case number and refer you to an Apple-authorized repair center that will make the repairs at Apple's expense. Naturally, this is not like homeowners insurance - the warranty won't cover things like flood or fire, but if something suddenly stops working or is behaving weirdly, this is what you need.

Without fail, every AppleCare warranty I've ever bought has paid for itself several times over. Never buy a new Mac without one! ... Read more
