    Just bought my first new macbook! :)

    I'm not sure of what needs to be done, in terms of validating any licenses or that sort, or registering for applecare, etc.

    Can someone fill me in, thanks :)

    edit: i haven't bought any additional applecare yet.. i'm saving up for that now, and gonna buy it in the summer.. but i'm curious whether i need to do anything to set up my 1 free year of applecare

    Turn it on and use it! If you bought AppleCare with it, it's already registered, and you can verify your coverage by entering your serial number here. There's nothing else you have to do, but start using your Mac.

    Also, it might behoove you to get a third-party warranty that covers accidental damage; AppleCare does NOT cover that.
