    Hi
    I have ordered a custom retina macbook pro.I found a deal for apple care online on some site and it says AppleCare Protection Plan Mac Pro MD00xxxx OPEN BOX. I was wondering if it is for regular macbook pro or the retina macbook pro.Is the apple care for macbook pro device specific.will it work for my retina macbook pro:confused:

    You also have no clue if the code inside was used to register a computer then returned to the store.

    when i click the one for the retina display it still takes me to the AppleCare Protection Plan for MacBook Pro. I have a deal on ebay for 50$.

    ----------

    I have seen it on ebay and it says never registered.

    I would take a stab in the dark... just a guess, mind you...that the reason you are taken to the MacBook Pro Applecare Protection Plan is because you have a MacBook Pro.

    But I could be way off base...

    :rolleyes:

    $50 is awfully inexpensive - remember you often get what you pay for. And "never registered" is just words they typed in.

    Ultimately it's your call, however, I felt you needed to be warned of the risks.

    I bought two Apple Care licenses over the last month on Ebay (rMBP and MBA) and they were both sealed; no issue on installation, very reputable seller. An open box may be another story.......
