Cheapest price for Applecare iMac?

I am thinking about getting Applecare to extend the warranty on my iMac. My iMac is one year old in June so I need to buy it before then but I am really put off by the price tag of £139. I know that if my iMac went wrong, it would cost more than £139 to fix but I am saving up for various things at the moment and £139 is a rather large amount of cash to spend at the moment.

So a) Would you recommend Applecare or is it something that isn't really needed? b) If you recommend, where is the cheapest place to buy it from?

I have seen some on eBay but not overly keen on buying something like that from there!

Thanks

I would save your money towards a future upgrade (which would come with 12month applecare).
Touch-wood Apple's don't normally die, if you really wanted the peace of mind I would take a look at PC world, I noticed the were selling off applecare and mobile me at the weekend half price, maybe a nationwide offer but it was in the clearance section. I bought 12month mobile me for £37 which also gives applecare support via ichat.
