    Hi, I have another question :D

    I bought a new macbook off ebay, but the seller is being really stubborn, and refuses to give me the receipts too. If i need to claim off ebays limited warranty, will the serial number do? Also, if I buy applecare for the product, will that override the fact that I dont have a receipt, as it will go onto the applecare?
    On that point, if I need to claim off applecare, do I also need the receipt?

    You'll be fine. Ebay has a record of the transaction, so no receipt needed. AppleCare only requires the S/N of the computer. Receipts are highly overrated.

    Thanks :)

    I'm a bit paranoid with receipts, I always keep them lol

    I get really edgy when I don't get one :p

    I don't blame you. If a seller doesn't want to provide receipts, the install DVDs (VERY important!), or is in any way uncooperative, I'd cancel the deal. Of course, I prefer to buy only directly from Apple. If you have the serial number, you can at least verify the remaining warranty.
