    Bought my Macbook Air 2013, on the 21st September 2013, so not long ago at all definitely under the 28 day period. I live in the UK. Bought from my local Apple Store in Leicester...

    I have however redecorated my room within that period and am thinking of putting an iMac their instead, hence thinking could I take my Macbook Air back put the rest of the £ in and take an iMac home with me?

    AFAIK, there's no such thing as a 28-day period, unless it's different in the UK. Apple has a 14-day return window, so you're definitely past that.

    Even 1 day past the return period matters. You can always ask, and some Apple reps have been known to bend the rules, but I wouldn't count on it.

    Sucks but oh well, thanks for your help dude, the 13" Macbook Air is great regardless, and I could always buy a display if they release a retina one in 2014 possibly.

    I used my MBA with a 22" cinema display + dvi/adc adapter + TB to DVI. Worked, but I had to use the MBA away from my desk almost all the time. I bought a 2007 iMac and just sold it. I will just get a Mac Pro to solve all my issues.

    Do u know ur UK laws well? I hear the EU has a mandatory 2 years warranty(?).

    Warranty and Return Period are two entirely different things.

    I swapped mine and I had it for two weeks, the guys in the Apple store are great, they don't want you leaving with something you don't want.

    Inside the UK it depends on the retailer you either get a 7 day change of mind or 14 day change of mind option on your electronic product. You really need to refer to your receipt or go on to apples website in the uk to get the change of mind time scale information.

    Apple generally offer 14 days in store. However, if you're buying another machine instead of getting a refund, I don't see why they wouldn't do this after 20 days if you don't get on with the MacBook Air.
