    I just bought macbook air off ebay. Turns out it's from America, which the seller never specified. Anyway I have a few questions:

    He gave me the original receipt for the laptop, and the superdrive. The superdrive is broken. Can I take it into an Apple UK store and get it repaired/replaced even though it was bought in the US?

    What happens if anything goes wrong with the laptop- is it still covered under it's warrant in the UK?

    Any help is appreciated,

    The warranty is international. As long as you have proof of purchase, you're covered any way.

    Until recently I bought almost all of my personal-use Apple notebooks from the US and I've never had problems with getting them (inevitably) Applecare'd.

    However a replacement may be trickier to organise. I had much quibbling over two Airs - undoubtedly the most attractive yet useless computers I've owned in the last few years - that I decided not to bother pressing my UK Apple business people for a refund, but simply to dispose of them in other ways.

    They will certainly fix it with a US receipt. This may include giving you a new superdrive and taking the broken one.
