So I bought a refurb 2.4 UMBP just 13 days ago today at $1,899 (cdn.). On Monday, all the new Macbooks get released, and on Tuesday I see the price of the one I bought has dropped to $1,549. So I call up Apple, talk to a nice lady, who tells me yea, no problem, I'll apply a credit to your credit card no problem. Then, once done, we proceeded to have a nice conversation, give that this is my first Mac ever. She wasn't trying to upsell or anything. It was great. Today (day 13) I see that the 2.53 model is only $100 more. Previously, it was $400, too rich for my blood. But $100? For more cpu, more ram, more vram, more L2 cache, and a bigger hard drive? Yes please!! So I call them up, ask if I can return my 2.4, pay the difference, and away I go. At first, it was going to be a $189 restocking fee. They waved it as long as I pay the shipping...$12. Yes please!! So, in my first 14 days, I've saved a ton of money, and purchased a much upgraded computer, AND Apple was absolutely fantastic to deal with! I just wanted to share this experience, because on forums there is always too much complaining, and not nearly enough complimenting! Thanks for listening, and watch for my many questions about how to use this darn thing soon!!
