    when i bought mine 3 weeks ago all they asked for was my id, i wasnt enrolled at the id i gave them, simply because i didn't have my new id yet (post secondary option, graduated HS, now going to college)

    he didn't care in the least

    At the Apple store, they verify your ID by just checking your picture and the year on the card. Most likely, if it's expired, they won't care, especially since it just expired.

    Online, they don't verify anything.

    I bought my powermac about a year and a half ago at the Apple Store. I used my student ID from 1995. No joke. I also buy online all the time and there has never been any confirmation.
