I called Apple yesterday because I was upset about not getting the price guarantee since I bought my 17 2.93 MBP a month ago. I asked for the difference in cash. They said no. I asked for a refund then, they said ok, just pay restock fee. I said no, let me speak with manager. They said manager not available. I said have one call me. Later that day manager waives restock fee so I can return old one. I ordered the new one last night. Here are the specs 3.06 processor 500GB drive 5400 rpm (I am swapping in by SSD) The Lotto part relates to Apple's quality control. Especially concerning dead pixels and uneven backlighting. Here's hoping the new one is a keeper.
