i'm going to use my old netID... i think it still works =). is it worth buying this AppleCare protection plan?
It depends on how much you spend/how rough you are on your computer. Apple has great warranty service and the student discount makes it pretty cheap. But it comes with a 1 year warranty and something like %90 of all failures happen in the first year. However, if you break your comp and they won't cover the damage, the warranty is also refundable at a prorated amount.
It's a personal choice but my thinking goes: Macbooks, yes ('cause you carry them around everywhere) Desktops, no ('cause you don't).
