    Is it possible? Nothing is defected, I just need a windows laptop for school. I still have a couple days left of the 14 day return policy.

    I bought everything with a student discount at store.. Macbook, applecare, and a bag and I have the receipts for everything. Anyone know if I can return all this?

    Why not just install windows on ur mac using VMWare fusion or parallels or Bootcamp (which comes with Leopard)?

    Ironically, the best laptop to run Windows Vista is MacBook Pro....

    It's a macbook. I'd rather save the money for books and what not as well.

    I have a MBP too.. but my MB is for school.

    You can but there is a 10% restocking fee so take that into account.

    I wonder. If you already had a functional MBP and knew you'd be starting school soon, why'd you buy another computer? I ask this because you seem to want to return the Macbook to buy yet another computer. Wouldn't it be simpler to just install Windows on the MBP?

    The only thing I can think of is having slightly less to carry, but I don't think that alone would sway you into buying a whole new machine. Yeah, just run Windows on your current machine (set up another "School" account, even).

    3 months ago, Sager's np9262 will run vista better than a MBP. Might be twice the weight of the MBP but it is faster.

    If you're going to cite that survey, the honest thing to do would be to cite that it compared a handful of laptops. There are plenty of notebooks that run Vista better than an MBP does, as there are plenty of notebooks configurable with better graphics cards than those in the MBP.

    No reason other than I have a lot of money and I like new things.
    But really.. I wanted something more portable.

    MacBooks share nearly the same footprint as MBPs, and are just .4lbs lighter. Really not too much in it...

    You can return your macbook if you really wanted to, there's a ten percent restocking fee if the packaging has been opened, also if you've registered applecare, you cannot return that, you'll have to call applecare and beg them to give you a credit. My advice is to return whatever you can and just install windows on your MBP

    If 6'3 is average that makes me a midget/gnome.

    average height for an american male is between 5'9" and 5'10" I doubt the UK is that much higher.

    Yes... the average seems pretty small eh? Female is 5'5"

    Just so you knows. 6'3" is well above average.

    To the OP: if you want to waste a restocking fee... return it. If you want to probably make some or break even... sell on Ebay, I assume you got it with student discount... and if the applecare is already registered, that may be your best bet.

    Install windows on the MBP and be done with it.
