    Hi, I bought a MacBook online two days ago and it has not been shipped yet and I want to cancel it for a Pro. I choice to put the 100gb harddrive in and since it is custom I'm not sure if Apple will let me cancel that and exchange it for a Pro. I also bought a 60gb Ipod and a Printer and plan to use those rebates, but am not sure if they can just crossout my MacBook order and add the Pro in and it will stay in the same sales order. I know I can call, and I will tomorrow morning but I was wondering if you guys think they will let me exchange an unshipped item to another item while staying in the same sales order.

    I also bought the Applecare plan for my MacBook and did not realize that you can wait 11 months then sign up for it, so you guys think they can cancel that and refund my money? That has allready shipped but I have not gotten it yet.

    The reason I wanted to cancel it is because I realize that I can play WoW on the MacBook fine, but I'm a big gamer and while I do have a PC w/a 7800gt gaming in the car is allways funner on those long trips. I also am waiting for the game Spore to come out and highly doubt that the MacBook can run that, so that is another reason. Thanks for all who comment.

    All you can do is call and ask very nicely if it's still early enough in the process for you to change your order. Since you're trying to upgrade to a more expensive model rather than just canceling outright, they may be more willing to help you out.

    Allright I just called and changed it to a MacBook Pro w/100gb and a glossy screen. It took me 15min and service was great. I ordered some datamem ram when I ordered my Macbook and it was a 2gb kit...would that still work with my Pro? They look like the same speed.

    It will be delivered aug 9th, so if they do announce something with the Pro I will be sure not to open it and get charged a 10% fee on 2000$ :eek:.

    lol, yeah WWDC coming up. I doubt there will be much annoucements. Well done on the upgrade though. Ram is the same speed however, so no issues on that front.
