    I ordered AppleCare protection plan with my macbook and on the order status it says complete. When my shipments arrive will I actually receive the box or not? I really would like the box as super proof that i have it. And my iPod touch just shipped right outside of Shanghai China..... why so far away? I hope my macbook doesn't come all the way from China because I want it really soon.

    If you ordered from Apple you should get the box.

    iPods frequently ship out of China because I believe there is a warehouse there. Unfortunately MacBooks also frequently ship from China.

    You ordered it with your Mac? If so, they usually auto-enroll you and you don't get a box, IIRC.

    I ordered it with my iMac and got a box. Actually, the box came before the iMac did.

    If you don't get a box, how do you get TechTools that comes with it?

    They do indeed come with AppleCare boxes. In my experience, they've often arrived before the actual computer when ordering online.

    You should be auto-enrolled. Also, register your Mac with Apple Support so you can get assistance without having to look up serial #s and find boxes.

    Ok thanks! I should probably go home and check to see if it has arrived.

    can someone let me know for sure about their applecare box? i'm worried as my ipod and moshi keyboard cover was shipped today, but my applecare box has simply been moved to "completed" so i dont know what shipment will have the box?

    thank you!

    so it came in the same shipment as the macbook pro? one of the apple store reps told me that it will be sent by US mail? i hope it isnt US mail, because apple doesnt ship to P.O. Boxes, and i dont recieve my US mail at my street, only PO Box..

    Well that is hopeful news. Maybe mine will do the same. My iPod is in Anchorage Alaska right now. And my Macbook Pro is somewhere either in China or somewhere above the Pacific Ocean. Hopefully it is over the ocean on its way to Alaska..

    When I ordered my Mac Pro, the AppleCare information was in the box with the keyboard and restore disks.

    Ok so my MBP arrived and there was no AppleCare protection with my computer box. So, does that mean I am not getting a box. Online it simply said that it was "Completed." I would really liked to have had my box.

    Nope there was not a single thing. Just said completed. No papers in the box or cd or anything.

    Do you think it might come with my printer box?????
    If not, does anyone know how to get to that thing in the apple store where you can chat with an apple store representative? I once talked to someone on there through like an instant messenger thingy and they answered my questions.
