You say thats unbelieveable???? I agree. Still, thats what I'm told at my local store and thats my experience. The following is from their website = 6 months for computers--they aren't very restrictive? I'm sure this may be informal/local/temporary but its pretty lenient and justifies my membership cost. >>>>>> (PS--just read a similar notice re "NO Service" by Apple for Ipods after one year and they are almost designed to break after said year??)
