I bought the MBP 13 on 3/23/10.. The top end model for the 13" which has 2.53 GHz CPU and 4GB RAM. I swapped out the HDD to SSD also. I was wondering since the new one is out, can I ask apple for an exchange or that's not possible?

WTH is wrong with yours? You're not going to get much of a performance improvement with a new 13"....

You want to trade it in for .13 GHz?:rolleyes:


I just don't understand spec-chasers.

And a battery upgrade
and a trackpad upgrade
and different graphics
and a mini display with audio

He must be crazy!

I am pretty sure you can only return within the 14 day window after purchase.

I bought my 2.53 13" model on April 5th and can return mine. I am just wondering if it is worth the hassle. But I don't know if I could get a partial refund due to the price decrease. I don't know if it works considering it is not the exact same product (different processors, battery, etc). Anyone have prior experience?

meh.. I guess I'll stay with what I have.. it isn't slow or anything, just wanting to keep up with the spec if possible without any fees.. since it's only 3 weeks old..

All of you should at least try calling. I've heard more than one person on this forum talk about how they got an upgrade when they took their computer in when it was less than one month old. Try it, at least!

That is a really good idea. I never even thought of calling. I usually like any excuse to go into the apple store. But I will give it a try tomorrow.

i bought mine on march 26th. before i pulled the gun, i asked if it were updated would they exchange it, and they said within 30 days.

i called earlier today and the manager said "come on in we'll take care of you."

so tomorrow im getting my newly updated 13 incher with updated graphics :D :apple:

go for it dude, get your moneys worth. since they don't pre-announce product releases they have to make up for it somehow.

i dont think they have to, they rather gain future business than lose it because of some exchange :]

I walked into the Apple Store that I bought the MBP today and asked them about the exchange, the employee said "sure, we'll find out if we can do that."

I hope they won't charge any restocking fee or anything =/..

If they do, what is a good excuse?

They might not charge you a restocking fee if you payed more for your old one than for how much the newer ones cost.

Mine was $1499.00 which the new one is the same price.

I'm just worried about will they actually accept it for an exchange.. How does it work? Do my mom (she paid for it) have to be there with me or can I just go alone and ask for an exchange?

Why don't you call them or go to the store and ask? Seems to be they would be able to give you a better answer than random people on the INTERNET! Tell your mom you are not happy with what she bought you and you order her to buy you a new one.

BTW - You HAD to know that there was an upcoming update coming when you bought your 13". If you visited any Mac site 3 weeks ago that is all anyone was talking about. With that said, I'm glad I waited another month as I am SATISFIED with my i7 MBP! :D

I needed a MBP before my Spring Break was over. I had no choice. I did ask an employee and all he told me was to bring the MBP in with all the original accessories and they will have a talk with the Manager.

I'm planning to do it tomorrow but I don't know do they need my mom to be there if they are going to refund it and then rebuy or something like that.

You may need the original card it was purchased on... assuming she used a card and not cash.
