I'm waiting for my new MBPr, and i'm not going to lie, the glued in batterier scares me but I still bought it :). I was wondering if anyone had some experience with adding accidental damage coverage?

Thanks
Brooks

If you are talking about Applecare- that covers a limited amount of physical damage ( like a reduced replacement charge if you spill liquids). I would recommed it for anyone new to owning a laptop, or if you plan on being on location more than 30% of the time you are on it. That way if something happens when you are on the road, you can get expedited repairs from some of the larger apple stores.

Apple care does not cover drop or accidental damage on laptops. I was wondering if anyone has bought an insurance or extended care for a laptop that covers accidental damage. I want to be able to carry around my macbook, with out a huge worry about breaking it. (I've never broken a laptop before, but with the repair rate so low on the macbook retina, I want it covered.)

If you're a business in Australia, marine insurance will cover any damages while in transit. If its a personal laptop then home and contents insurance will cover it.

Just talk to an insurance broker and they will give you the right insurance.

Yes, it does on the unibody designs- my wife spilled liquid on her Air and the replacement unit was discounted and it does cover discounted display repairs- the most comon damage.

As has been said, a "marine" insurance policy is used to cover most electronics and camera equiptment, line item the laptop on your insurance and then you are only out the deductable for replacement.
