You got your Mac, but weren’t too keen on springing for the AppleCare protection plan because it was just too much. Well we’ve heard your cries and are glad to be able to bring the price down for AppleCare on all Mac computers by $20. Your Mac computer comes with a standard 1 year warranty that protects it from everything, with the exception of theft and accidental damage. You also get 90 days of over the phone tech support as an added bonus.
AppleCare takes your warranty, and the 90 days of phone support, out to three years from the original date the Mac was bought. AppleCare is a great service and will save you money over the life of your Mac if you run into any issues. Not only that, but if you are the kind of person who likes to sell your stuff for the new model every year or so, AppleCare helps to maintain your Mac’s resale value.
Use that extra $20 to buy yourself some cool apps from the Mac App Store, or go to lunch, add some gas to your car, the sky is the limit.
