Re: APPLE back up ?

An answer of sorts in many parts:

Applemacs have an international warranty, not necessarily honoured in a country different from where purchased.

There are plenty of Apple Authorized Resellers in Turkey: Two in Bodrum, one is a Silver Reseller ( Silver Apple Bodrum | Gümü? Elma | Bodrum ) They have a tech page; but it's blank. Fourteen in Izmir, one of whom is a Premium Reseller (In the Agora Balcova Izmir) and from personal experience was about as useful as a chocolate teapot..

No Apple Authorized Service Providers are listed.

Selling and finance. isn't a problem, servis yok.

On the plus side; one of my powerbooks is nine years old and still working; try that with a PC. Take a separate hard drive.

Re: APPLE back up ?

As far as I know there are no Apple stores in Turkey, unless a new one comes up in Istanbul but Apple only disclose this info. close to the opening...The latest new country in which Apple opened a store was in China.

A call or e-mail to Apple customer service may tell you your nearest authorised Apple repair centre.

However, I can tell you that the warranty is global. I purchased a Macbook in the U.S and have had it seen and repaired F.O.C under warranty and a even a few times out of warranty F.O.C in an Apple store in the U.K for a known hardware problem.

The Macbook would have a global warranty -all serial numbers of Apple products are scanned and any Apple store anywhere in the world can pick-up when you bought it and then carry out repairs FOC if within warranty period.

Re: APPLE back up ?

I stand corrected, I did not know about resellers but was thinking of 'Apple Stores' only. So hope the re-sellers apart from selling Apple products would do Apple repairs for Fuzzy if needed.

Has anyone in Turkey had an Apple repaired by any of these Apple re-sellers? May be worth knowing how the repair went for others who may need this service.
