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.
