    On the apple website, it shows applecare for the macbook air/macbook, whereas the ebay ones are macbook/ibook. I can't call apple right now, but I need to get applecare before the 13th. If I buy the macbook/ibook applecare, will it still be valid for my macbook? I'm assuming they changed it over to air/macbook because they released the air.

    yes it will be valid as long as it hasn't been opened/used. If you buy it online, you could always get him to open it up and give you the code right away.

    I'm going to call apple to make sure. It's unopened, and he said that he would e-mail me the codes.
