    So I bought a macbook and put 500 dollers down on it, thinking I would be able to keep up with the payments.
    Well I just recently got laid off and I don't have the money to pay the rest of it off.
    I've had it for a little less than a month, its in perfect condition and works fine.

    Can you return it, or does it have to be faulty to return it.

    You have 14 days
    Even then, there is a restocking fee

    After 14 days, no. You could sell it and try to get some money back that way.

    You can always try stores generally tend to not stick people to the 14 days here in the UK. I purchased my 2.53 unibody which had a screen fault on the day they came out. I rand up the store a week later and explained I was away for 4 weeks. The store manager said no problem and kept a stock 2.4 and stock 2.4MB so I could decide which I wanted went I got back. I got back month later and they swapped it all out for me.

    You may be able to pass it off. If you say it was a Christmas gift. 14 days from the 25th.
    I bought 2 ipod nanos, and each came with a extended gift receipt god for 14 days after Christmas.

    Your lucky! Apple changed the rules and any Macbook bought since October is able to be returned until 9th Janurary.

    This is because we have an event called Macworld now, and some people might have faults with their computers etc and want to upgrade when the new range of computers come out at Macworld.

    I can vouch for that too. I saw it on the Apple website earlier in the week.

    Yes! Both of you are right, I just checked the return policy:

    This could possibly mean that there may be updates coming to existing machines eh?
