    No. Your warranty with Apple starts the day you purchased your Mac not when you decide to register it.

    No, your warranty starts from the date of purchase, whether you register or not.

    No. The way you register is by sending them your reciept. They will see the purchase date

    All warranties begin on purchase date, regardless of if or when they're registered.

    It will if you entered it as the sale date, but if you get warranty service you may be required to produce the receipt. Since it wasn't purchased from Apple it wasn't entered at time of sale is all. Subsequently you may have to prove warranty via a receipt if you need repair..
