Dave found over 50,000 reasons to get AppleCare.
There was a time in the not-too-distant past when I never bought AppleCare. It was like getting insurance for products that just never failed. Much. I’m on the iPhone Upgrade Program and that comes with AppleCare.
I got AppleCare on my iPhone, too.
The Apple Store online gave me a basic Mac Pro– case, display, stand– for $11,997. AppleCare+ for the Mac Pro is $299 and for the HDR Display, $499. $798 three years or $266 a year or $22.16 a month. That makes it sound less.
You need insurance for a product that costs $12,000.
