Hi all, I am planning to get my mac next week and going overseas. The country has a premium reseller and lets say if it has ghosting, burn-ins, screen tearing, would it be possible to give it to them to repair. it will be a drag to send it to America, than repairing it, and sending it back, the sending itself can take upto a week.

Like another said, it needs to be authorized to repair.

Simple solution. Contact the Reseller before you leave and ask. I don't have an Apple Store near me but I do have an Authorized Repair shop and my AppleCare has always been honored without any questions.

And just for the record... an Apple "Authorized Repair Center" does not have to be a store front.

I live in rural Asswipe America and my authorized guy lives down the street and works out of his house. Does a great job btw. His main source of income is goat-milking I think.
