So I have recently purchased the base rMBP from a local Apple Store and had to return it due to cosmetic damages. This happened twice to me on two separate occasions and have decided to wait a bit now and order another online (BTO), until any further issues or bugs have been resolved. In the event, I receive more defective merchandise, can I return these BTO systems in-store for a full refund? From what I have read here, some required the systems to be shipped back but some were able to return it to a local Apple Store. For those who have had a defective rMBP BTO's, what procedure did you have to follow? Was it worth the wait? It does not make sense to wait for another 2-3 weeks for a defective product replacement in addition to your initial waiting period.
