Powerbook...return policy

    I was wondering if anyone knows whether or not apple has a return policy. I am planning on buying a powerbook within the next week, and would like to be able to return it and get a new model if they do come out with an update say, in early august.

    I could not find that in Apple's return policy in the link above. Could you direct me to where Apple says this?

    If it isn't there, the person who stated it is in the return policy has not checked it lately. That is the official policy page. No other exceptions.

    I didn't think they had a returns policy because so many people complain about getting a new Mac then finding that just a few days later a faster one is released.

    This is the problem with Apple. In the PC world you can get a computer at any time with the knowledge that they are not going to make one that is a lot faster and release it next month. Apple should just update the computers when new tec is avaliable in enough numbers to sell.

    Apple's store though has a different return policy than some of the other mail order shops. Though it does impose its policy on some of those shops, though possibly not all. It pays to shop around:



    are the two links you can use to find authorized resellers and call them to find out what their policies are for returning Apple products. Some are more flexible than others as I've read on other boards. One thing to note, Apple will not install third party RAM, while most third party resellers will on Macs.

    I stand corrected. Found Apple's reduction in price policy here:
