Hi guys. I thought I would share this anecdote in case it helps anyone who is in a similar situation. I bought the low-end 2010 MacBook Pro 13 on Jan. 22, 2010. I had been following the rumors and knew that an update was coming soon. However, a work project drove my decision to push forward and just pull the trigger on the purchase. I was somewhat impressed with this weeks MBP upgrades. Expecting no results, on a whim I called my local Apple Store (The Domain, in Austin, TX). Despite being 34 days from the date of my purchase, the manager of the Apple Store let me upgrade to the new 2011 MBP 13 at no cost and with no hassle. I brought my old unit in, and left with a brand new, off-the-shelf MBP with Apple Care. I asked the store manager what the office policy was. He advised me that machines purchased within 30 days are eligible for free exchange in the event of a product refresh. Even being four days past the cutoff, he was happy to let me exchange the product, which was very surprising to me. This is further proof to me that Apples customer service is the best in the business. Im proud to be a customer.
