I'm considering buying a stock 17" C2D MPB as soon as they appear at my local (sort of) Apple Store ( I live in MA, but am looking to purchase my MBP in the beautifully tax free NH). I currently do not own a Mac (I guess you could call me a switcher, though I have used Macs before, between 1987 and 1996). I've been monitoring the MBP threads for a while, and I am becoming increasingly concerned about reports of various problems with the MBP screens, primarily uneven backlighting. So to make the long story short, I would like to know if, in case I am not fully satisfied with my MBP, I can return it for a full refund. I understand that the official Apple policy states that I would have to pay a restocking fees, but it strikes me that such an anti-consumer policy is simply bad business, and that Apple must realize that, in the long run, it is in their interest to simply refund the money, rather than deal with a "difficult" customer who is going to demand a replacement after a replacement after a replacement (etc. etc. etc.) until he/she is fully satisfied. I would like to know what people's experience has been with Apple returns, i.e., were you forced to go through the hassle of getting your machine replaced (assuming it's not a CTO and you came back to complain within the 2 week window after the purchase)/ repaired (assuming it was CTO)/were forced to pay the restocking fee, or were able to get your money back "no questions asked".
