Silverado 5yr AppleCare
Silverado, a California-based Apple dealer, has announced that it will automatically extend AppleCare coverage from three years to five years for all professional-grade Mac systems purchased after January 1st, 2009. For the first three years of standard coverage, customers can obtain normal service through Apple. During years four and five, Silverado, at its discretion, will determine eligibility for repair or replacement.
The warranty extension applies to any Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, Cinema Display or Xserve devices. Systems will not be eligible for replacement or repair if they are not functioning due to abuse, accidents or non-standard usage. Additional information is available directly from the company.
