Hey guys, I'm from Germany and i got a little suspicious about my mac - maybe you can help? I've bought a mac air 2011 from apple's homepage (Germany) when it was released. Since then i've had problems with freezing and crashes of the os. I was new to mac OS so i thought well - not that much better than windows after all - in terms of reliability. But a collegue said i should go to an Apple Store and let them check the hardware because its not normal at all. So I did. First I called Apple to make an appointment. First suspicous thing happend: They told me my mac would be registered under an american adress and asked if ibought it from ebay or something? I said no and they registered it under my name. One week later after testing the hardware they called me and said: The hardware is ok - but your backup partion is missing and it would need a lot of technical knowhow to remove it. if i would know anything about that? I said no and asked them what has happend to my mac in the past and if any mac with lion would be sold without backup partition. Answer: NO. So what happend to my mac? Why could it be already registered on some adress in america and why has someone tempered with my partition? I'm 100% positiv that i did not delete the backup partiton and I'm 100% positiv that i did not register that mac under an american adress. Any suggestions? I'm really pissed with Apple right now because they are like: Well you have your mac live with it.
