    Hey guys!

    I'm going to embark on a 3 month tour starting June 1st. I was planning on buying an MBA for this trip. If a MBA comes out in the first couple weeks of June I'm gonna be kinda bummed that I'm buying right before the refresh. If I were to buy a MBA here in the States, could I exchange it for a new one in Europe as long as I'm within the 14 day window? How different of a machine would it be if I exchanged it in Copenhagen (for example)? Would they even let me do this?

    I'm concerned there'd be a non-US keyboard and possibly other differences that I wouldn't like over the 3-4 years I'm likely to own this machine.

    The differences would likely be the keyboard and the power plug. The rest should be the same. You probably won't be able to exchange it overseas.

    Yeah, it seems like it'd be tough to exchange overseas to me too. Not a huge deal, I guess considering the ongoing discussion of SB vs inferior GPU. I can always sell when I get back if it really matters to me...
