Oh, well, that's OK then. You can go ahead and void their warranty as much as you want; as long as you're not voiding Apple's warranty those other guys can go blow for providing a service you don't need in the first place.
(I just looked at their website, and I notice that with the new-found strength of the dollar, you guys are getting raped almost two-to-one, probably more after taxes. Does Apple really not care about the edu market over there as much as they do care about it over here? They damn near bend over backwards for us for selling their shit in our store, and that's even including some of the shit they've screwed us on.)
