If I buy from an Apple store or from Apple online, my options for warranty service and repair are to take it to an Apple store, ship to Apple or take to an Apple certified service center. Does that pretty much sum it up? If I buy from Best Buy, what are my options? Do I deal directly with Apple, or can I take it to Best Buy? Would Best Buy work on it themselves, or would they just ship it to Apple? I ask because I live 15 minutes from a Best Buy but 2+ hours from the nearest Apple store. A four and one half hour round trip doesn't do much for me, nor does going to the trouble of shipping the thing back-and-forth myself. Just being able to take it to Best Buy sounds a lot easier, but I'm not sure how it works. While I'm at it, same question, but if I buy from Amazon or some other online retailer. Thanks for any help.
