Should you get AppleCare for a MacBook Air?

So I plan on buying a 13 inch macbook air (just the standard model)

And, what I cannot decide on, is should I get the AppleCare, its very pricy, and I have to say I really have no care for the phone support. What worries me, is if any component of the computer dies, the computer is practically done, well according to iFixit that is.

I understand you can buy into the AppleCare program up to a year from now, that may be easier on the wallet in the short term.

What are your thoughts on AppleCare? I searched this and was surprised that not many posts seemed to discuss this.
