Warranty question for MBP purchased on e-bay
I looked around for a post on this but couldn't find an exact answer.
I purchased a brandnew C2D MBP on e-bay. The only receipt I got for it is from PayPal, which I used to pay. I registered the serial number on Apple's site and it showed a purchase date of Nov. 22 while I received it Wednesday, Dec. 6.
I don't care about the difference in days there, but will I be able to obtain warranty service (should I need it) with a PayPal receipt? Does it matter if a reseller is "authorized" or not?
P.S. I read the entire Apple warrant ( http://store.apple.com/Catalog/US/Im...-post1997.html ) and didn't see anything specific mentioned. Thanks

I bought a Mini on eBay, nearly new, and when I asked Apple, they said take it in. I took it to an Apple Authorised Service Provider, they just looked up the serial number, verified that the computer was sold in the previous month, and treated it as under guarantee, no questions asked. It's the age of the machine, not the possession of a receipt, that qualifies it.
