    Hi

    Could anyone clarify what this actually means? If I purchase a Macbook Pro directly from Apple (which I have), how long am I actually covered for in regards to hardware faults?

    Doesn't have to be purchased from the manufacturer. It can be complicated but there's guides to it online http://www.which.co.uk/consumer-rights/regulation/consumer-rights-act

    Essentially, it's I think 6 years. If a fault occurs before 6 months, it's up to the retailer to prove it's your fault. After 6 months it's up to you to prove it's their fault. But this stuff only covers manufacturing defects at point of assembly. Some companies are better than others at sending you around the twist with it.
