    I've bought the new MacBook from UK Higher Education Website (using my Uni's network), and according to the terms and conditions, it should come with 36 months / 3 year warrenty.

    However, when i type in my serial number at the support page, it only shows approx. 12 months remaining, any ideas?

    cheers;)

    Warranty from who? Read the terms and conditions again. Is the warranty from Apple (AppleCare) or from your university computer store, etc...?

    Presumably if they sold it to you on those terms, then that is what you get?

    I'm buying a MacBook from the NUS store in the summer, so I hope its 36 months :)

    I mean it really does clearly state in 10.1.1 of the T&Cs that you get the warranty, so I’m pretty confident.

    dont worry... the warranty is valid for 3 full years.

    i've checked that with Apple...
    perhaps you can give them a call.
