    My two months old macbook is alive again! Finally it's something more than just an interior detail.. The faulty Seagate drive has been replaced by Apple guys/gals :rolleyes: .. This was great news until I checked the warranty status on Apple store website.. there was no sign of the update, just information that I've still got 10 months of service remaining.. Is this worrisome, or apple website should not be trusted?

    well, it was actually replaced with a new hard drive, alas my data had been lost.. so doesn't the new hard drive (it is a brand new Samsung HDD) carry its own warranty? otherwise they could be replacing parts forever, before the warranty runs out..

    No, the drive from Samsung drive is OEM, meaning that Samsung doesn't warranty it, Apple does.

    You don't get any warranty extension for having a repair done.

    If you want an extend warranty, buy AppleCare. However, your repair does have an extended 180 day warranty, but that only covers you if you go out of warranty within the 180 days.
