    :mad:I just got my new MBA, not refusrbished. But when I turn it on for the first time to do the set up, there's a big line across the screen (about 2 inches wide). Now I have to send the whole thing back and wait for the replacement:mad:. Any ideas?

    I ordered it from J&R.com because it saved me almost $200 for the tax. I'm just going ot send it back to them and I just ordered a replacement with one day shipping. :)

    Did you add any customizations to your MBA? Then it's a BTO or "Built to Order".

    As long as they are willing to exchange it, then do it thru your seller. But, apple store will take care of it as well.

    Apple won't switch it, they didn't sell it!

    Apple Store won't exchange it, they have zero incentive to do so and how do they accept it in their inventory?

    I don't know if you consider this BTO. Here's the specs:

    13.3 inch
    Intel Core 2 Duo
    2.18GHz Processor
    4GB DDR3 SDRAM
    256GB Flash Storage

    To All that suggest to take it to the apple store:

    The closest Apple store is about one hour away from me. And I am also afraid that they will just repair it instead of exchanging it, and who kows if they have the one that I want it in stock. So I just ordered the exact same one from the same company and pay an extra $30 for expedited shipping. The total was $1,779.98, and I think its still worth it.

    I wonder which store you need to go to get your warranty claim. I think it's apple store.

    Yes, I bought my iphone from best buy and had issues. Apple store took it back and exchanged for a new one without any questions.
    Same thing goes for my MBP.

    For future reference, this probably didn't require 4 "helps" and an "asap". Nobody's dying.
