What will you do when your Macs aren't covered by Warranty?

Macs play an increasingly important role in Enterprise and Education markets; and, therefore, it is important that your Mac hardware is protected against faults, damage and inevitable wear and tear.
Protecting your device(s) warranty
Apple have put in place a number of key requirements to ensure that your Mac gets the highest level of service and its hardware’s warranty is not invalidated when you send it in for a service, repair or upgrade. These include:

  • Only allowing Apple authorised parts to be sourced.
  • Only allowing Apple Authorised repair centres to fit the parts.
  • Tough regulation on the environment the repair is carried out in and processes the repair must follow.

Failure to meet these can invalidate the warranty.
Scales of Apple Warranty
For the first year of an Apple device’s life, Apple provides 1 year warranty that covers all parts and labour.
You can also choose to take out the “Apple Care Protection” (APP) plan, which covers your Mac hardware for the subsequent 2 years.
However, as your Mac enters their 3rd year of usage or are over 1 year old, without APP, this presents many companies with a very difficult decision:
Do you:
a)  Refresh your entire Mac fleet with new devices.
b)  Continue to use the devices but risk potentially hefty repair bills over the next few years?

As experienced tech users, we all know that Murphy’s Law hates gadgets!
Typically, Murphy’s Law tends to kick in the day after your warranty runs out and your cat decides to knock your MacBook off the table… or worse.
