    Even with the student discount, the same thing from the online Apple Store is $1,649.00. RAM is expensive through them though, so it would be a little cheaper if you got your RAM somewhere else, but even then it wouldn't come close to being around $1,000.

    If you got it for $1,000, and you've looked it over, and it's in fine shape/good condition, why is there even a question?

    Well it would help if the link was working but it is probably a pyramid scheme and as you are banned, i think that i will definately not listen to you.

    But you should compare the price to the refurb price, not to the full retail price. A refurb 2.0 GHz White MacBook is $1099 w/o the memory upgrade. So with Memory upgrade, minus depreciation, let's call it $1250 or $1300. So yes, the MacBook was a great deal, but not as great as you imply.

    And to the original poster who then sold it for $1500, congratulations, you managed to sell it for at least $200 more than it was worth. Whoever bought it from you could've bought it from *Apple*, with the full warranties that that implies, for far less than they paid you. With skillz like that you should make sure to put them to good use to get rich :p

    As long as it's within the first year, yes.

    $1500 for a pretty much stock White Macbook?! The only difference being upgraded ram!? That's amazing. I can't believe someone bought it at that price. Nice job.

    What if you don't have the original receipt? Say you have your eBay receipt, would that be enough along with a serial number?

    No need for any receipt. Apple will go off your serial number as to whether it's still covered or not. If it is, then Applecare can be applied.
