AppleCare protection plan less expensive in Japan right now

The AppleCare protection plan for the MacBook Pro is slightly less expensive in Japan right now than in the U.S. because of changing yen/dollar rates.

In the U.S. it’s $249 which is ¥25,452. In Japan it’s ¥24,800.

I always get the protection plan because 100% of everything I’ve ever bought from Apple needs repairs. My theory is they create these wonderfully-designed devices in spotless high-tech clean rooms and then throw the parts out into some dark, Chinese back alley where low-wage children put them together with glue.

So I’m going ahead and getting it before my trip to the U.S.
