    Hi all!

    I bought my MBPr 2.6 i7 processor, 512 GB SSD and upgraded from 8 to 16GB memory. I bought it as soon as it was released for a student price for 3,199 AUD (which meant that I got the ram upgrade for free).
    Now I checked the app store with the student price and they seem to have 2.5ghz (256gb ssd) and 2.7ghz (512gb ssd) models with the 2.7 already fitted with 16gb ram and for a student price of 2,979 AUD !!! that's a 220 AUD difference!! isn't there supposed to be a solid price guarantee or something? should I ask for the $220 to be refunded? they are offering less price for the 2.7ghz model and mine is 2.6ghz and more expensive which isn't reasonable at all!! anyone went through the same? what do you suggest I do???

    No. I believe that you bought it too long ago to get the refund.

    idk man it's been only 8 months :( they can't change the price in less than a year! so not fare. And why do you think it's too late to get a refund? was there a released statement from apple?

    Alas, 8 months is a long time in the tech world. If it was within 2 weeks (Apple's typical return policy) then you would be about to get the difference refunded. But if it has been 8 months then there would be almost no chance of getting the difference refunded.

    Price adjustments are only honored unofficially within the first 30 days of purchase. If you think that's an unfair policy then by all means don't support Apple and its draconian sales policies. Vote with your wallet!!!

    8 months? no way man, it just aint going to happen! 14 days, maybe 30 days at the max, but 8 months in the tech world is like one day in the reg world...lol

    Thats like buying a pair of shoes for say $150, and then months later they go on sale for $90...Very Vary fat chance that your ever getting that $60 back into your wallet...
