    Ive been wondering for a while this situation. Lets say you have a macbook pro but suddenly realize its not for you. Could you take it into an apple store, lets say 6 months after you bought it and trade it in for a macbook? Ive just been wondering out of curiosity.

    no you can't.

    i think you have around 14 days to return it (from memory - may differ between countries.) and you get a refund less a restocking fee of 10% or so.

    i think its about 15 days before you can take it to an Apple Store and get your money back or trade for another Mac. after the 15 days you have to pay a re-stocking fee.

    i thought you still had to pay the restocking fee if it was within the return period? (unless you don't open the box!)

    For hardware, you have 14 days in which to contact them and request a return authorization. You then have 14 additional days in which to get the machine back to Apple. If it's opened, you pay a 10% restocking fee.

    If it's custom configured or beyond that return window, they won't take it back.

    Really? You were wondering that? Really?

    I'm not (entirely) trying to be rude, but seriously - where in your life have you ever seen a retail location accept "tradeins" or returns on a 6 month old item?

    Costco. Although now it's limited to 90 days on electronics.

    Precisely because people would "rent" items for 6 months (or 5 years, in the good old days).
