Macbooks purchased through CompNow are supplied with a 3 year onsite warranty. This does not cover accidental damage or theft, please consider the accidental damage warranty supplied by CompNow and decide if it right for you. You may also consider adding the device to your own insurance. If you elect to purchase through another supplier warranty support will not be through the school. We highly recommend that such devices are covered with personal insurance and with extended warranty cover.
