FAQ: How can I tell if my Mac is under warranty?

In your web browser, go to Apple - Support - Check Your Service and Support Coverage, enter your serial number and click "continue."


How do you find your serial number? On most computers with Mac OS X, you can find the serial number in the About This Mac window, from the Apple Menu (upper left corner of screen). You'll find other useful system information there, too.

A Blast from the Past

When I saw William Shatner in this little nugget from the archives of the AT&T Tech Channel, posted by Engadget, my first thought was "wow look how far we've come."

Then, a stray synapse fired, and I had a flashback to my high school days: a Navy recruiter, in a bid to convince me and my buddies that he was offering not just a job but an adventure, showed us a video of good ol' Cap'n Kirk presenting the advanced technology of our submarine fleet. I'm still trying to find that one on YouTube!

The AT&T/Bell Labs video discussing the implications of the microprocessor runs about 14 minutes. A subtle PR video in 1976 (slightly revised in 1980), it's entertaining today but has a certain educational value, as well. ~ Davis

Editor’s note 10.3.2014: since the original post in March 2011, some of the above links no longer work, but the AT&T Tech Channel is also on YouTube. Gotta love those sound effects!

FAQ: Does Jefferson Consulting sell Macs or PCs?

We are not a computer dealer or an Apple Authorized Reseller. While we don’t sell new computer systems, we do offer the best tech-support and personalized training...so you can get the most productivity out of your Mac, PC, iOS and peripheral systems!

Think of us as a professional-grade "genius bar" or "geek squad" that does house calls and onsite visits to your office. Some businesses hire us as their Virtual CIO, filling the gap between executive management and Information Technology - on a part-time basis. For home and business clients, we can also work with your preferred vendor, to assist you in identifying and procuring the best solutions for your needs.

While we don't sell equipment, software, or accessories, we do often refer business to the local Apple Store and Apple Store Online.

To order your Apple system or accessories from the Apple Store Online, you can click any of the Apple Store links displayed on the sidebar of our webpages, or click here. Ordering from any of these links gives you convenient home or business delivery, earns us credit for the referral, and earns you a 15% discount on our services! (Limited-time promotion, expires 12/31/14)

If you need Apple equipment immediately (i.e., same day), please visit our local Apple Store at Christiana Mall, and tell them Jefferson Consulting Associates referred you!

FAQ: Can Jefferson Consulting do warranty repairs?

Mac repair is our specialty.

Warranty repairs can only be performed at the Apple Store, or an Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) location.

Please understand that Apple's hardware warranty only covers defects in material and workmanship, but not accidental damage. There is some accidental damage coverage on iPhones and iPads if you purchased AppleCare +. If your Mac is "in-warranty" but the problem was caused by accidental damage, the Apple Store or the AASP may charge you for the repair.

Our Apple-certified technicians can do most, but not all, out-of-warranty Mac repairs. For most situations we can come to you office or home and troubleshoot the problem. If it appears to be a warranty issue, we can transport your Apple product to the Apple Store and save you the time and potential hassle (standard consulting fees apply). Please call our office at 302.380.3373 to discuss you needs.
