AppleCare Now Available Separately for Apple Monitors for $99
Somehow we missed this landmark event which now appears in the online Apple Store (Mac Accessories->AppleCare & .Mac) for $99:
“AppleCare Protection Plan extends your Apple display's 90 days of complimentary support and one-year warranty to up to three years of world-class support.”
AppleCare for Apple monitors previously was only available as a free companion to a same-time purchase of a Power Mac, Mac mini or PowerBook. If purchased separately or, sometimes, if they shipped at different times or if the Mac was sold but the simultaneously-purchased monitor kept, AppleCare did not cover the monitor. Finally, Apple has rectified this and one still gets free AppleCare for monitors purchased together with a qualifying Mac. [Bill Fox]
