    Hi. I have a friend who is going to USA and buy a BlackBook for me. Can he buy a AppleCare protection plan for me in USA too when I live and shall use it in Denmark? I want to buy it from USA but going to use it in Denmark. Is that possible?

    I think so. AppleCare is a worldwide warranty. I had AppleCare in Canada, and yet I got serviced in Australia.

    Absolutely possible as it's worldwide coverage. However, don't buy retail - get it on ebay and the seller will email you the serial number (which is all you need to register). For the MBP you can get it for around $200, which is quite a saving over retail.

    Buy it in Europe without AppleCare,
    due to EU regulation you have 2 years of warranty, even if :apple: continues to tell a different story in the hope to sell their stupid AppleCare, but 2 years warranty is law.

    I don't have 2 years warranty, but 2 (don't know what it is called, but I think it is: Reclamtion)

    E.g. in Slovakia there is 2-year warranty but on the other hand in Austria only 1 year. Both are EU members. Can anyone explain warranty policy in EU? I thought it is 2-year by default, but doesn't seems so :confused:
