On my last day of uni, my MacBook Pro died. It was happily playing a podcast one minute, then, nothing. To put a long story short, the logic board has obviously died. So I did what any mac owner does, I called Apple. I quoted my serial number, and I got a long pause, I was put on hold for a minute or two... Then I was informed that my warranty had expired and I needed to go to a Apple store for my problem. I thought this was strange as I bought my machine in August (29th), so I still have a good 2 1/2 months remaining, I explained that my machine was not bought in May as they were saying and that I still have warranty, it took a while for the guy to stop trying to fob me off, but we got there in the end. Turns out, when I bought my MBP, someone forgot to register the date when it was sold correctly, and the date that it came into stock was put as the purchase date. Brill. Now, here comes the fun part, I was told that Apple are going to send me an email with all the details of my purchase, that I then need to mail to Apple. Something doesn't seem right here, Apple are going to send me something, so that I can then mail it back to them... Really?? What really confused me was the guy I was talking to kept quoting the purchase as if I'd bought it from a reseller, where as it was direct from Apple.com (Refurb), his ignorance annoyed me. Anyway, moral of the story, always check your purchase date/warranty info, cause if it's wrong, Apple pin it on you to fix it.
