    Didn't they do away with that last year?

    Edit: Here's the MacRumors article.

    no restocking fees. At least presently.

    I don't see how they can do this, as people can abuse this sort of thing like crazy; FREE 14 day rental!!

    Frankly, it makes bying really easy on the nerves :D

    It is 14. I imagine if you do it a lot they will eventually blacklist you.

    Yep, I returned a pair of opened in-ear headphones once, a SuperDrive, both for good reason. I also exchanged my 10 day old 2010 MacBook Air with the new model this morning but not sure if that one counts.

    I was told that they had done away with restocking fees months ago, when I went in for work done to my mom's 13" MBP.

    Good part on Apple.

    Right.

    I remember this happened to somebody using Amazon. Seems he was returning a lot of laptops.

    Some people return them over and over in an attempt to find perfection.

    Now this new policy encourages that. I don't know how many people do this, but going from this forum alone, they (Apple) may have a problem :D

    Off topic just slightly: like in stores, there is no restocking fee for online orders either. Apple even refunds your shipping (if you paid for expedited shipping) and pays the FedEx 2-day return shipping (at least that's been my experience in the U.S.).
