I'm going to get a MacbookPro finally. First Apple in my life (eh, it's been 17 years since I've layed my hands on PC). The only problem is that I'm from Russia and here MBPs are like $500 more expensive and no Apple support. But I was lucky to find a friend, who can buy one MBP for me in USA and bring it here. As there's no support for Apple products in Russia, I'll have no place to send my MBP it case it heats like hell, whines, moos, boos or spoils my joy of posessing it anyhow else. Can anybody please tell me, which questions does my friend have to ask, when he buys my MBP (it will happen over internet with educational discount)? What can tests can he ask a manager at Apple to peform to ensure, that my MBP is perfect? Some commands, screen checking, keyboard check, DVD-check, battery-check?? Please, really need your help. It's my only shot and I can't miss. Otherwise I get stuck with a faulty MBP and wasted $$$$ Thanks everybody.
