    I used to buy my iPod classics through gray markets, years ago, but I never had them serviced so I can't remember if the warranty started when the store purchased the item or when I did. So I'm curious, if I buy through AJT, BosJap or elsewhere, will I still get the full one year warranty?

    Bought 2 Macbook Pros from BosJap for my two friends. One was serviced in Beyond the Box for keyboard replacement without issue. The other had battery issue and was replaced in a official Apple service center in Japan.

    For some reason the units in the local market is pretty expensive, maybe because of the huge demand, everyone is buying a laptop for school or work. If you have access to a forwarder like Johnny Air, the cheapest is to buy abroad.

    I feel safer buying from Amazon and have it freight forwarded to my door step in 10 days.

    I’m sure they will be. I was referring to the particular dates of the warranty. My brother had an experience when his 17” MBP had a problem just three days after the warranty lapsed.

    Sorry to hear about your brother's MBP. Sadly this is why I always buy AppleCare especially for my mobile devices. Saved my hide plenty of times. My old 2011 17 got a free battery replacement, mother board and keyboard replacement thanks to Applecare. It was basically a new computer. Still works like new today and my nephew is still using it to do layouts for his school's newsletters and brochures.

    Considering Apple's high prices, frankly this service should really be just a part of the purchase though.

    from which webstore is it good to buy a mbp now? Based on my canvass local AJT and Bosjap are selling the 512gb ssd for 84 and apple ph is pricing it at 86. Apple Us is selling for 1500 but add tax and total would be 82,500 without shipping

    Amazon has tax refunds. So if you can wait for it to be shipped over. Still worth it.

    Finally, bought a base model Macbook Pro as a belated birthday gift for my Mom :). Her poor old Macbook Retina got smashed in an accident so she needs a new computer for her emails and facebook.

    Hi just want to ask, can you use education pricing on the Apple Ph store even if you dont have an ID? Do they check upon checkout? Thanks.
