    you'll be prompted for registration, you can do it then.

    i use click to flash and really like it.

    As far as I can remember you can register online the warrant is worldwide, I will check up with my Apple Authorized reseller in India from where I buy all my Mac computers and update you on that.

    Yeah Click to flash is a good one will give you a lot better battery life, where flash is needed I just use chrome but for everything else I use Safari.

    Rav I had a talk with my friend who is a apple authorized reseller here in India, you can go ahead and register your mac that was purchased in the US in India, you would get the warranty the warranty is applicable world wide according to him.

    ranjitb i finally got my bad boy air today and i followed exactly what the air told me to do .
    i went also on click to flash website and downloded the software and gave it run and then went to youtube and the videos there tell me that i need to download flash i dont see the grey patch of click to flash . i click on safari at the extreme right on the screen and i dont find any click to flash icon or anything what i need to do for that ? iam sorry might be a silly question but this is my first ever mac in life any help from u will be great .

    The MacBook Air doesn't ship with flash installed. If I'm reading your post correctly you've installed Click To Flash but haven't yet downloaded and installed actual Flash from Adobe site. That is what you need to do next.
