    Yes, because everyone knows that once the new MBPs are released, yours will stop working.

    I have a feeling that you (specifically you) wouldn't even notice a difference between the one you have and the one that is (probably) going to be released.

    These threads always pop up right before an impending update. :rolleyes:

    How did you find this out? There is no guarantee of that, hopeful, yes. But NO for sure.

    Well apparently the OP's will stop working on the 27th, so I don't think he/she is so hopeful...

    Yes, but if you have a black one, you can't exchange it for a white one.

    Don't forget that the screen is multitouch and is detachable and can be used as a tablet.

    Why are you guys so harsh on the OP? Maybe he was referring to an exchange system of some sort. Not all people who have Macs know everything about them.

    Uh... children, unlike Toyota, Apple actually has a 14 day return policy--no questions asked. You can return any opened item in good condition within that period. There is a 10% restocking fee if the item has been used. (This is where many Apple refurbs come from...)

    You would, of course, be free to order a new one after that.

    Unfortunately the OP is beyond the 14 day returns window. Next time, check the MacRumors buyer's guide as I did back in mid December... it showed a "don't buy" recommendation.

    And I thought it was unwise of people to think mac owners were snobs.

    OP, I politely say no because that just wouldnt be feasible. I know many things come with a 30 day return policy but apple operate a 14 day one.

    I think everyone here is aware of that, even the OP. BTW, the Buyer's Guide isn't in reality the best indicator of new models, searching the forums is probably a better idea. The Buyer's Guide is solely a math calculation of average updates. See the Apple Cinema Display as one case where it is well... struggling.

    Only quad core? I was really expecting dual quads.

    I'm pretty sure that since the Apple product has to be in good condition to qualify for a return within the 14 days, THAT counts as a question asked.

    As thegoldenmackid mentioned, the buyers' guide isn't the greatest source, but it does give you a general idea of product-release timing.

    Sorry no disrespect to the OP I just couldn't resist. The rest of you should be ashamed. Dual quad cores? Detachable screen!?! ;)

    Fixed that. They charge you the restocking fee if the seal has been broken.
