Can I Avoid Restocking Fee?

    I have an SR Macbook Pro 15" still within it's grace period (one day left), and want to return it for a refund as I'm experiencing many of the issues others have complained about: yellowish tint toward bottom, lid not latching consistently. And the last complaint is probably not considered a flaw, but the resolution is so high it strains my eyes. Yes, I know leopard may solve this issue, but I may go blind waiting.

    Apple will no doubt recommend I bring it in to a store, but I'm roughly 100 miles away from the nearest store (I bought it online). Plus, fixing the lid and yellow tint issues would still leave me stuck with high res, so I simply want a refund.

    How do I convince Apple to refund me without charging a restock fee?

    I don't know that you can avoid the fee. You do know that you change the resolution, right?

    Changing the resolution results in fuzzy font, but apparently Santa Rosa will address this problem. Why does apple charge a restock fee for products that are obviously flawed?
