i had to have my white macbook replaced several times so they gave me a black one to keep my happy ( i wasnt there for awhile). i took it to the apple store to get the lcd and invertor replaced and when he ran the serial he said " are you mr rodriguez" i said no, then he asked for my name and put it in the system. didnt think much of it till now but looking back that serial for the macbook was registered to someone else before me, which got me thinking they gave me a refurb when they switched out my white one without telling me. does anyone else see any other explination for my laptop to be registered to anyone else? should i be upset? true i paid for white and got black, but i also paid for new and most likely got used or as they put it "refreshed". thanks for any input.
