Apple Care Protection Plan? How much time do I have to get this?
About to make the jump to my first Mac, probably the Macbook. I have set a strict budget for myself. Apple's educational discount won't really help me as all it does is take off 100 which is added back on with tax anyway. Can I buy the Macbook from somewhere else where there is no tax/shipping then pick up an Apple Care Protection Plan directly from Apple with the educational discount or do they both need to be purchased at the same place? All help is greatly appreciated.
