In addition to Niel's suggestions, some Home Owners or Renters insurance policies offer coverage. Check with your insurance agent.

Currently Being ModeratedJun 16, 2009 4:35 AM (in response to iVmichael)thanks so much for the info. i don't have a home owner's policy since thanks to vet school i had to move away from my condo and thanks to the real estate market, i had to rent it out to cover the mortgage instead of selling it when i moved away. however, since i do technically rent a room near school perhaps i can get renter's insurance....i will definitely look into this. thank you again, i really appreciate it. i'm sure i'll be posting more and more in these forums since i have offcially purchased my first mac and become an apple addict.MBP 13" 2.53 ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.7)

Most rental insurance only cover it for theft or damage from fire, water etc.
A floater will cover it for theft, loss, any damage (Including most operator error.)
For example, if your apartment was broken in, and the MB stolen, or if there was an apartment fire and the computer destroyed renters would cover it. If it say get's stolen out of your car, left an airplane, or dropped you would most likely need a floater.Mac Pro 8-Core 3.0GHz. , 15in Powerbook G4, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
