    I bought a Macbook Pro last Sunday. Then on Thursday, the new one came out. Not to sound stupid, but would most of you go return the 'old' one to get the 'new' one? Thanks.

    yes

    go exchange it's not the official policy, but you can talk your way through.

    go before it's too late

    Many had success with that procedure - bringing the old MBP in and getting a new one. You also have a 14-day return window.

    Actually it is the official policy. Since they do not announce update release dates, there is a built in clause. If there is an update within 30day of purchase, you can exchange it for a new one.

    Go ahead and do it. I bought one on Feb 11 and exchanged it on Thursday right after they opened. No big deal either. Just bring the packaging and a receipt. The receipt isn't necessary, but it always helps since they can scan the barcode on it to do the exchange. Easy stuff.

    If it's a 13" then you should probably consider whether the diminished 3d graphics performance is going to be an issue for you.

    If it's a 15" or 17"...you'd be kinda crazy if you didn't swap it out for the new one.

    yeah, cause Apple totally deserve to have a lower revenue because you feel a false sense of entitlement to an upgraded model of a product.


    I dont know why apple bother....

    Seriously? It's an apple policy. If they didn't want to do it, they wouldn't.

    Their return policy is just one reason why Apple is better than other companies.

    Return it. Get your money back. You paid way too much for a corei5 and No video. (13")

    there's a lot of these threads lol. How'd you not find this site before but signed up just to ask this? Just sayin... last Sunday? I think anyone on the internet would've known new MBP's were near by last Sunday. Sorry to single you out, just in general for all the people asking this the past couple days.. kinda.. bunk.

    woah. Few comments shouting me down because I think that if someone is dumb enough to drop that kind of money without even a simple google to buyers advice, that apple should not really bother accepting anything outside of the 14 day limit....

    just my $0.02
