Hello, I am planning on buying a MacBook Retina in the next few days but will be going on vacation out of the country soon afterwards. I am buying it now because of the $150 best buy student coupon, but I will be on vacation for about a month and I wasn't planning on using the laptop or even taking it out of the box. My question is this: does the warranty start on the day you purchase the laptop or does it start when you first turn on and register the notebook? If it's the former I wouldn't think that's very fair that the warranty would keep ticking before I even used the laptop. If that's the case hopefully I can call apple and ask to have the warranty date revised to when I first turned the laptop on.
