    Hi everyone,

    I have a late 2011 MBP 17 inch which was originally purchased in Hong Kong as a gift before making its way to Canada. It is still under the 1 year warranty.

    No boxes or receipts of any kind were retained, so there isn't any tangible proof of purchase.

    Will I still be able to register Applecare to my MBP?

    Check there for your warranty.

    I'm sure you can add an extended warranty I know for the Apple laptops its a little more pricey. I got it for my iMac it was as simple as buying it from Apple and registering it when it came to my house!

    If its still during the 1 year warranty, you are qualified.
    Just go to Apple or get it online cheaper.

    You can still get the AppleCare Protection Plan, just call Apple or go to a store (reseller or Apple Store, either works). It's international too, so you can use it anywhere Apple has service.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I did check the store and the prices are insane. Nearly $400 counting tax for additional 2 years warranty.

    I looked at the B&H video site which I heard offer better deals but they don't ship to Canada :(
