    Only $100, it's worth it.

    I work at an Apple service center and see daily the times it paid heavily to have Apple Care on Mac products, saving customers Hundreds of dollars in one repair alone.

    I purchased it with my pre-order, along with the binder type Apple case.

    I actually purchased the Apple Care Protection Plan yesterday when I ordered my iPad 64GB WiFi+3G; however a few hours later Apple sent me an email informing me that (at least for now) they have not been given authorization from the state I live in to sell me the Apple Care PP.

    Not initially, I may get it when the warranty is close to running out, but I'll have to see what the product lineup looks like at that time. I may decide to sell my 16GB WiFi unit at that time and upgrade, depending on the situation.

    I actually purchased Applecare. I normally don't bother with extended warrantee's, but unlike my Mac and PC's, I'm not likely going to open my iPad and fix things on my own.

    When I purchased my 32g wifi Ipad, I also purchased Apple Care. That was at about 11a CST. I didn't get an email confirmation until about midnight. I live in Dallas, Texas. Apple advised me that I could not get Apple Care in Texas because it wasn't available. That just saved me 100.00. I have gotten Apple Care on other Apple products here.

    The only thing that I purchase these extended warranties for are mission critical servers. It is a big money maker for the people who sell them though as the claims percentage is usually around 15%. When I purchase something at Best Buy they always try to push the extended warranty at you. My response is why do I need that? Is there something wrong with the merchandise that I should know about? If my purchase is going to require an extended warranty then maybe I shouldn't buy it at all.

    i have apple care on my mac pro and my mom's imac but this device is too inexpensive to really need it. I think you get 1 year to add it...so maybe i will in that time...but it comes with a 1 year warranty.

    I purchased it with my 16GB WiFi. I didn't order it with my iPhone and got lucky that each problem I had (exchanged twice) was under warranty.

    I think as long as you take care of it you will be fine.

    Apple Care not available

    Have you considered a Square Trade warranty; they may be available where Apple Care isn't; just something to think about.

    I'm with rudeman. My Amex Gold gives me as much extra warranty as Apple Care, with no additional financial outlay.

    In case you don't already know, Amazon sells apple care at a discounted rate (got my moms iMac Apple Care for $70 instead of $120) they sell iPhone care so they will def be selling iPad care. If you hold out until they start carrying it you could save a few bucks.
