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.

I got the same message from Apple about not being able to do AppleCare in my state...Texas.

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.
