    So I bought a MacBook Air for my wife during the Best Buy black friday sale. It's remained in the packaging and never opened as I plan to give it to her next week. Is the warranty going to only have ~11 months left when she first powers it up? Or will the warranty start the 12 month clock upon first use? Thanks!

    Warranty will start at the purchase date. Now if your MacBook Air stops working in December 2017 (more than a year after purchase, but not a year since she started using it), there's a reasonable chance the the Apple Store would agree to repair it under warranty.
