With my old Macbook from 2006 I had a bulging battery, chipped faceplate, and a worn trackpad. They replaced everything under Applecare; without it, it would have been 330 some odd dollars.
Congrats on your new Mac!
I will definitely consider it. The Apple store said I think I have like 30 days to get AppleCare. People seem to say its a good idea.
