    I've inherited an iBook G4 from a friend who no longer has the receipt, box, or any of the original stuff. Is there a way -- even by calling apple -- that I can find out when the item was purchased, and in doing so, if it is still on warranty? Any help would be great. Thanks!

    I put my nephew and my brother in similar situations over the years when i have sold them my old Macs after I had gotten new ones. Apple never gave them any problem about honoring the warranty.

    Whenever I really, *really* need to know a Mac's status from GSX it'll normally decare that the unit was bought in the Upper Volta in 1872...

    In my experience GSX has worked pretty well except when Apple performs "unscheduled" maintenance at a very odd time.

    If you take it to your local Apple Store, a Mac Genius can easily look up the information using the serial number. Apple will honor the remaining warranty. Hopefully they had purchased AppleCare.
