Okay, so im really excited to be getting my first Mac. Ive deceided on which one I want, and im ready to order it. The only thing I wonder about is the whole warranty thing.
In the past when purchasing an item from a store I have never opted for the optional extended warranty as thats what I beleive the CGA is for. But after having to recently return an item using the CGA im wondering if additional cover is better. It took a little over 3 months for an item of mine to be replaced, and I would like to think that if I did have a problem with my Mac that I could have it fixed straight away.
So my questions are:
1. Is it worth buying extra cover?... If I do have a problem with it, it will still have the 1 year manufactuer's warranty that Apple would fix it under.
2. Does the CGA still apply if I order it of the Apple Store.
3. Whats the difference between the AppleCare Protection plan and the warranty Harvey Norman are offering me.
4. If I have a problem with it after the 1 year standard warranty and chose not to get the extra cover. Are Apple likely to fix it quickly? - Providing it is something that the CGA applies to.
Sorry if these questions seem a little dumb.... But I just want to know that if I do have a problem I can have it fixed as I have never seen the point in paying for something you are already entitled to.
Does anybody know how long the Commerce Commision state that a laptop should last for / the parts work for?
