Except For the "Service Engine" Light
Someone insisted on standardized error codes for any and all cars, at least in North America. How much time is spent servicing for nothing because of this weak spot. And it can happen anytime. With new cars you get between 3-5 years standard at "no visible extra cost". With Apple you want 2 extra years, that'll be $300 dollars please. Does that tell you anything. Macs are expensive to fix after 1 year (remember the iPod battery fiasco?). Just like Best Buy tries to sell you an extended warranty. That's where they make their money. But their extra 2 years on a non-Mac is much cheaper than Apple Care and there are (still) a lot more Best Buys around than Mac dealers.
