Great peace of mind on your iMac for little outlay. Extend your coverage to 3 years from 1 year.

£139 from Apple and has been dropping price on the outlet, was £77.99, £59.99 and now only £49.99!

Perfect timing for me - I've got a new iMac coming on Monday. Many thanks for posting, scoobeesnac

try tescos in store £47 widnes had two on display yesterday

Score! Pleased with this as I defo need it! HEAT!

I've just bought an iMac so am debating buying this. Can I ask why people see the need for this?

Doesn't EU warranty cover 2 years and then you have a total of 6 years if the iMac was bought online?

Do the iMacs tend to fail after 2 years or are they generally unreliable hardware wise?

great price. shame my imac is too old for it now.:(

Does this cover macbook pro's by any chance?

Will this cover the iMac mini ??

Great price. Just bought it. Thank you for posting.

How does work... Do you have to take it to a mac store if you have say a hardware fault or do you have to ship it off to them.

I was in the same quandary with buying an iPad. Apple have a fairly comprehensive 1 year warranty, after that period the Sale of Goods Act does give you some protection but the onus is on [i]you[i] to prove that the fault existed at the time if delivery. Apple might replace/repair without much trouble but if it came to it then you might have to pay for an independent assessment to prove otherwise.

No

Does the iMac have to be new for this to cover it? Mine is around 9 months old, would it cover it for a further 2 years 3 months? Thanks

Yes, you can add AppleCare anytime within the original 12 month warranty period

Trust me. You definitely need this. I had a battery go on MBP after a couple or years. Another major problem (Nvidia issue) that they only fixed when I threatened to take them to court. Not touching another Mac after delving into their QC and warranty issues...

More people should know about AMEX myessentials. £10/month gives you full coverage of all your gadgets up to £1500 in value. Only disadvantage is you don't walk into an apple store and walk out with a replacement - here it could take a few days to replace.

My mac air is 4months old...can I use this?

Absolutely. Great product.

Many thanks, ordered!

This is a no brainer, £50 quid for additional 2 years, £1300 for iMac + £50 2 years cover = Piece of mind, £25 a year its nothing. Although you could also think £1300 for iMac should come with at least 3 year warranty. As three times the price of normal PC.

Apple only provide a 1 year warranty in the UK. The 2 year EU thing is "semi-ignored" by most suppliers, and is more limited than the 1 year coverage. The Sale of Goods Act does also allow you to claim for 5/6 years depending on which part of the UK you are in.

The reason people buy a warranty though, is that it's always much easier and quicker to get it dealt with through that. You may have to take someone to court to enforce your rights under the Sale of Goods Act, and there's then no guarantee you'd win! You'd also potentially only get a small refund of the item price, which wouldn't allow you to repair it or buy a replacement. Hence the value in a warranty, "peace of mind"

Brilliant, thanks just bought

Thanks didn't know about that. Have recently become an Amex cardholder. How did you get it for £10 pm? It appears to be 12.99 on their website

It seems they have increased it to £12.99 I've had it for over a year replaced an ipad screen and a lost iPhone with no problems at all, if imac components fail not sure they will cover this might give them a call I want an imac 27 which one though ?? Help

Covers only iMac
Does not cover Macbook or Macbook Air

I just bought an imac from apple yesterday and they did the three year cover for £48 in store

Heat for me. Great deal.

FYI, this comes free as standard on all mac purchases direct from apple through the education store.
If you are an educator or educatee, or know one, then you get a discount (around 11% off the computer) and free coverage worth ~£200.
When I tried buying last time, they asked me to go through my uni network, but someone on here last week said they are pretty lax with checking student status.
I think you may be able to retroactively apply the additional warranty to your purchase if you didn't get it at the time.

We always got AppleCare for our new Macs and usually get the value from it. You can take your Mac to a service centre and often get it looked at the same day. Service centres are not just Apple stores, there are lots of them. It's not cheap but it's worth it. Just got a new Air yesterday and will be buying AppleCare for this one too. At this price it's a no brainer for iMacs, just a shame they don't have the Air/Pro 13" one on sale as well.

Good price!

If you bought from the education store or with a student ID then you just wasted £48. Congratulations to the smooth talking sales assistant.
