    Why does the box matter?

    Check out LA computing online. In general, they have the cheapest AppleCare pricing. I would not do eBay.

    Thank you very much for telling me that.

    Should I try to get a better deal off of eBay and see if I can buy Applecare with the box, or would there still be risk? Should I just buy directly from Apple/Apple retailer?

    There will always be a risk with eBay.

    Now you have to make sure that the AppleCare is purchased in the country you intend to register it at.

    furthermore... always get the box with a serial number on the outside. There are counterfeit AppleCare boxes out there.

    I decided I'll just buy it right from Apple. I can get an educational discount, so it is only $239 from Apple.

    That is what I did. I'd MUCH MUCH rather pay $80 more, and get a legit copy. click on the link in my signature to see how the resellers get it for cheap, and how they rip people off. No sealed box = hacked code!
