Post what you recently got for free!

Similar to the purchase thread, post the last thing you got for free! It can be anything really. Please try to post a picture.

Replacement MacBook Pro with a new full year of Applecare My old Applecare expires this month so I got lucky.

I would not call exercising you rights under a warranty as a "freebie".

Well yes but I'm pretty sure you don't get another full year of Applecare do you?

Typically you do. My MP was bought in 5/2008, replaced in 2/2009 and AC was to end 2/2010 but they wiped out the previous AC I had purchased and applied it to the new machine to give me coverage to 2/2012. So yeah, you get a new machine and new warranty. Great all the same, but certainly not a freebie. You should post all the cases you get for free to review then sell off. That's a bit more impressive.

I think you get another year's warranty, but not if you have AppleCare. If you bought Applecare on your 1st/original laptop, and it gets replaced after a year due to recurrent problems, then your new laptop simply has 2 years remaining.

That's what happened to me. My replacement computer had 2 years of warranty because that's how much was remaining from my original 3 year warranty (1 year standard + 2 years Applecare).

The amount of problems with this statement is dumbfounding, but if you tried posting the above statement in plain English in the iPod forum you *might* get some assistance. Since I know that you might not understand all of that I will break it down for you:

Da amnt of probs wit dat statment is ridic, but maybe if you try and post dat in the iPod forumz YOU MITE GET SUM HLP and dan you can be gr8ful.
