    where is restocking fee prohibited by law? Not in CA?

    I was checking stores to buy a mac book where I can return without restocking fee in Southern California but haven't found yet. Best Buy and Circuit City say 15% restocking fee except where prohibited by law. Fry's doesn't even accept return. Walmart and Costco doesn't carry mac book.

    If there's no retail store, is there any online store selling w/o restocking fee? Or Apple is forcing all stores to charge?

    Why does it matter? If there is a defect, they will replace it for free. All electronic products have a restocking fee, or at least a vast majority.

    Your going to have to deal with a restocking fee. If it is defective you need now worry about it. Just make sure you want it before you buy then there is nothing to worry about.

    I think most stores in areas that do not allow restocking fees will simply not let you return it.

    Well, the problem is store exchange is only within 14days. If you find a defect after that, the product should be sent to repair center and it'd take at least a week? It's kind of hard to be unable to use PC at all.

    I think most people found their problems way before the 14 day exchanged.
