    If I buy the macbook and get a free ipod at a retail store and then for any reason decide to return the unopened laptop during the 14 day period, would I still receive the check for the ipod?

    Probably not, if that were the case Apple would be, practically, giving you an iPod for no reason by not making any type of real profit from you buying a macbook if you are just going to sell it back to them...

    It clearly says in the terms and conditions PDF "If you return a product
    required for promotion redemption and do not exchange it for another qualifying product required for redemption, you will not be eligible for a rebate."

    Is it really too difficult to read the terms and conditions?

    You may be able to get away with it - I've read that some people have gotten their checks in less than the fourteen days - and Apple may decide to not prosecute you. But then again, Apple could and very well may prosecute you for fraud.

    It's illegal.

    You also have to submit a piece of the box with the rebate, so you won't be able to return a box that is damaged, or, if you submit the rebate electronically, that has been entered into the computer. Your reciept is flagged and they won't accept the computer back without the iPod.
