Mac Warranty Status Script

For so long, I’ve wanted a script that got me the warranty status of the Mac I’m working on.  Granted, it’s not that hard to open the support page and put in the serial, but I do it enough that it gets frustrating.

Thanks to some JavaScript advice from a friend, I finally have it working!  When you run the little app, you’re given the option to check the status of the Mac you’re on, or manually enter a Serial Number.  

Then, it opens a page in Safari, submits the information (after a few seconds delay), and pulls up the response.  Make sure that you wait when you run it, don’t think it’s not working just because it waits.

So thanks to Tim the Tool Man for his help, and enjoy the automation!
