    Bad examples will be present in both weeks, as will Good examples. Its a case of looking at the iMac and looking for the defects. If none are present then obviously its a good machine.

    Whats more if you do have problems both machines are covered by AppleCare so you can take them back to a store and Apple should fix or replace.

    If AppleCare is on it, you will have to get it transfered to your name, and if it is just under the Apple 1 year warranty and you don't have a receipt Apple with just go by the serial number.

    Yes you can buy AppleCare as long as it is still under warranty, regardless of receipt.

    You don't need proof of purchase, it can be purchased with the iMac serial number (I think).
