    to buy or not to buy the apple care protection

    Discussion started by mental invalid - Mar 21, 2005

    so would you say, that im:

    1. retarded and cheap, the apple care is $183 bucks...your dropping a grand and change already...why not get the three year extended warranty you cheap dumb fuck...besides is a laptop and shit always happens and you know youre dumb ass will drop coffee on it...insurance sucks, but it sucks more when you dont have it...

    or


    2. a sucker...if shit goes wrong with the apple it will happen in the first year...besides are you really gonna keep the laptop for three years these days?? youll be outdated in 6 months and prehistoric in two years, dont be a dumb sucker and pay them for shit that you are not even gonna use...retard...besides its not gonna cover you dropping coffee on it...

    That's a tough one. CAn't you buy the protection program a year after you get the machine, and that way get 4 years of service? But then again, in 4 years that shit'll be outdated...I really don't know anything, but what I'm trying to figure out is if I should get an Apple or another brand when i do decide to drop some dough on a laptop.

    If a laptop has everything you need nowadays, what more do you need in the following years? I say make sure you know exactly what the extended warranty covers before you get it.

    I'm going with no.

    Apparently I have a new connection that can get me whatever laptop I want at a very reasonable price.

    I' ve got the insurance. But I do alot of travelling with mine, so I just got it for peace of mind. I've had trouble in the past with cd/dvd drives. I'd say get it if you have the extra money to burn. Then you dont have to worry about your screen going out or anything. I hear apples service is extremely good.

    anything i buy over $1000 dollars gets a warranty. i'd rather have a warranty and never use it then not get it and get fucked out of my money if something were to happen. that shit would eat at me for years on end and with my bad luck, id rather fork up some extra dinero to protect my investment.

    i bought the apple care when i bought my iMac a few years back
    and i must say that it was worth the money...it's paid for itself a
    few times over.

    my advice to you is to buy the apple care...it's worth it

    Just "accidentally" spill hydrochloric acid on it in 2 years, 9 months after you back everything up. When you look at it that way, $183 is pretty cheap for a new computer.
