So like the title says I bought my mbp (the one in my sig) off of eBay for 2000 USD which is awesome from a guy who gets them directly from apple. It was still in the box that apple uses to ship, still factory sealed. I also got an apple care protection plan off eBay for much cheaper too. As soon as I booted it up it registered my mac, and the purchase date according to apple is the day I received it and registered. I registered and linked my applecare right away as well and it was accepted and is now listed as linked to my mac. (when I go to apple's site and type my serial number in to find out my warranty coverage it says ny purchase date and that I am covered under applecare protection plan.) So after all that, I ended up getting a yellow screen. (and my spacebar is squeeky, anyone else?) So what can I do? I live in Canada, got it shipped from US (global warranty makes me happy) and so there are 3 or 4 apple stores in Canada, the closest one being 1200 km away from me. I do have like 15 authorized mac stores in my city however so here is my question. Can I walk into my mac dealer and get a replacement with no receipt or say my ebay/paypal receipt? I think they are shipping me my applecare certificate in the mail so I don't have that yet. Can they look up my serial number and know I have applecare? (not that it matters right cuz it's a santa rosa which none are more than a year old, right?) Second question is what happens to my applecare if I get a replacement as it's linked to the serial number of the mbp I'm on right now, do they automatically switch the applecare over to a new MBP for me if they decide to replace it? (can they even repair it or will they just get me a new one?) Someone help! I need a definitive answer on this before I attempt to go in as I work out of town and long hours, and it's gonna be hard to get in in store hours except for my days off like today! (after I finished typing this I started getting really angry at my squeeky spacebar. Thanks for all your help guys!
