On 11-20-07 I purchased a Toshiba Satellite X205 laptop. Things went well for 11 months.
It needed repair on 10-23-08. The tech at the authorized Toshiba repair facility confirmed that the laptop was within the 12 month warranty period. Then suddenly it was out of warranty. The reason - laptop was shipped to Best Buy on 10-19-07 - this is the date that Toshiba considers the warranty start date.
Even though laptop was registered on the official Toshiba website with the purchase date of 11-20-07, I now need to provide proof of purchase to Toshiba in order to get my warranty enforced.
