    What constitutes a proof of purchase? The receipt only?

    I bought a MPB from the Apple Store 2 weeks ago, which I plan to give to my sister in Europe. However I just realized if she needs to have it serviced (within the 1st year period) they might ask her for the proof of purchase.

    Now, I am not sure if I even received a receipt with the laptop, or if I did I might have thrown it away. What should I do?

    Since the computer hasn't been registered yet, would it suffice if my sister registers it to her name when she gets it?

    I've never been asked for the receipt when I've had my MacBook Pros serviced. The warranty follows the computer, it doesn't follow the owner.

    Although, this is from my experience buying it in the US and having it serviced in the US. Did you buy the computer from the same country that your sister is going to be using it (and presumably having it serviced) in?

    No, I got it from Canada's Apple Store ... she's in Russia.

    Check your email, most likely they've emailed your receipt to you if you did not receive a physical copy.

    iIdidn't get it by email, but I see I can get an invoice for my purchase. So I guess that should be good enough if there is a problem.
