    my point is you are swapping 3 year warranty for 1 given that Durham is a Stormfront store (and just about the only remaining shop on silver street).

    Yeah, we have one of those fake-Apple stores (Stormfront?) in Durham city but I think they are authorised.
    Thing is, the refurb machine I'm looking at is marked down about £250, if I was buying brand new I'd get a 2-year warranty(?) and not bother with AC so it seems a bit pointless.

      Had a battery expanding problem on a macbook pro last year (one of the first touchbar ones), no apple care. Apple charged £199 inc VAT to replace it.

      Accidental damage has always been covered under my buisnesss insurance (somthing like 20 quid a year for 10k equipment cover including 5k portable computers),but I've never had to claim on that so YMMV...

        Insurance being a gamble your device has an expensive problem, I've decided not to take the bet.
        An immoral person could imagine that if it fails in a non-fixable way outside the warranty, it might happen to get dropped down the stairs and be covered on their household policy...

          Anyway now I have a nice shiny 27" Retina iMac. CUK has never looked so good.
