    Hi ppl,

    I am from india, and I bought the UB macbook last november. Now I am thinking of buying APP for my macbook. But the issue is, APP costs Rs. 13000 ie ($274) in India. But in ebay it costs around $125 to $140.

    My question is, can I buy the APP from ebay and use it for my macbook. Also let me know the issues that I might face regarding APP when I buy it from other country.

    FYI, i bought this macbook from Hongkong, by which i saved around $290, coz the same costs $1660 in India, due to hefty taxes levied on it.

    Please help me out here to save some pennies. :)

    Personally, if I decide to pick up the AppleCare, I'm going to buy from Amazon for $180-190 (the price fluctuates).

    Cheaper than Apple, more than eBay, but a trusted vendor (Amazon directly) so that's worth the extra $$ for me.

    Thanks for the info...
    Could anyone suggest me a reliable APP seller from e-Bay???
    May be someone from whom you or ur friends had bought the APP...

    Just look for somebody selling a sealed AppleCare box - you've got till November.

    That's what I did. I was hesitant to get one of those applecare codes that some sellers provide via email (without a box). I know others here say it's OK but if you can avoid it, why bother?
