Hi and thanks to everyone who posts to help out others on this forum! Here's my situation. I am planning to buy my first MacBook or MBP in the not-too-distant future. (SO EXCITED!!) I live with my cousin who is a schoolteacher and therefore he gets the educator discount. He only uses PC's so he's offered to buy the MB or MBP for me so I can get his discount. I stand to save a lot of money, obviously, so this is a great deal. So, will Apple sell to ME at the Apple store, but using his discount? I want to put the computer on MY credit card and not my cousin's just so if I ever have a problem, I don't have to have him with me if I return it or get it serviced. I want the computer to be mine in Apple's eyes, not his. If they won't do it, my cousin will buy the computer and I'll pay him back, but then my question is if I do that, will that void the Applecare warranty? And, is the fact that he bought it but I'm going to own and use it going to make the initial setup of the computer difficult? How should I go about this? Any advice is appreciated.
