I bought a Mac Mini Solo off eBay last month. I have been happy with the machine but the drive failed today so I called Apple. They verified that it was still in the 90 warranty BUT wouldn't replace the machine or allow it to be serviced by mail; (its a desktop machine ). Why should it matter where I bought it if its a genuine Mac within its warranty period.... They said they would work on it if I took it to an authorized dealer; sorry I don't want to drive 25 miles to St Louis and look for the Apple store. I'll fix the machine and put a larger drive in instead of wasting time replacing a 60gig drive but I am not about to buy another Apple product anytime soon.
