Yup, I heard about this.  They're basically selling what they're required to provide by law in Italy.

That's not only in Italy. Warranties in Europe cover 2 years before expiring. If you sell a computer saying the warranty is only one year long and ask money for extending warrant period up to 2 years you are committing a fraud.

(sorry for gravedigging, but making clear statements helps people understanding situations)

P.S. I could expect such a beaviour from an used spare parts maccheroni car reseller not from a multinational computer firm like Apple in its Apple Stores!

what little faith i have left in computer companies is shaken like a redheaded stepchild every time i hear about stuff like this. it's why i usually stick with the same machine untill it REALLY dies (multiple system failure) vs buying a new one. building your own is even better than that. but then, it's not like i can build an ipod.....

(however gothpodII has run for several years without problems or fail, even after several falls and getting soaked in the rain once. apple makes a damn good MP3 player. but then again, i bought her at costco. >w>;)
