    Post What is the best place to buy AppleCare?

    I have about 40 days to get AppleCare. I don't want to buy it from Apple as they want $250 while amazon only wants $175. Thats a big difference. Just wondering if anyone here has found it better than that.

    I was unaware that retailers could charge customers less for AppleCare.

    So I have a MacBook Pro mid 2012. Is that considered the new version or old version? Or is version AppleCare version. For $174 I am considering it. Here is the link http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004R6J2V6/...e-20&m1k=vb_im

    Afaik, you can only add AppleCare to a MacBook in your first year since you bought it.
