    And buy the updated version when it's released?

    I already have a 2011 MacBook Air, so I'm in no desperate need of a computer...

    Is it worth waiting?

    If you don't need one now, yes there's no harm in returning and waiting.

    One might ask why you bought one now. Check how many days you have to return it, to see if you can wait for the announcement at WWDC.

    Why did you buy it when everyone knows that Intel is releasing the new chip in June?

    I didn't buy it, it was a gift from my company, and they had to get me the gift in may...

    But I'm returning it!

    I can almost guarantee you that less than 5% of people know this is happening.

    Clearly you knew what you wanted before you posted, so do that.

    Sounds like a smart move if your employer doesn't mind you returning it and using the money on the new models.

    Ditto. I don't think the MacRumors forum is representative of the Apple user community at large.

    The applestore will generally give them a store credit, especially if they explain why they're returning it.

    How does the OP know when it was purchased - it was given to them by their company. It could have been siting in some closet for 2 weeks.

    I would return it for store credit if you can.

    Im getting a iPad end of August from my company. Im happy with my iPad2 so will probably try to return that for part payment towards a MBA instead!

    What's not to understand? Someone obtains an item. They decide they want the latest and greatest knowing of the rumors that could turn out to be false, so they come here for a little hand holding and reassurance. I venture to guess the mind of the poster is pretty well made up when they do ask, but people tend to need constant reassurance. Many children are raised to not only want but need reassurance so it should be no surprise that young adults are unable to move forward with any one decision without the nod of someone, stranger or not. ;)

    Like I said before, it seemed as though the guy knew what he wanted to do and as it states above, he did it. Only after he got a nod from at least one person.

    Well done OP. Today is a good day for decision making.

    While you'll still come out ahead, I'd look at my next paycheck. I bet you paid taxes for your "gift".

    Uh... yes. No. Yes it is. Maybe :confused:

    Decision making is what grown-ups do correct? Isn't that why we make the figurative big bucks

    Thread seems unnecessary... except I post these myself all the time. :p

    "Mmmm... just bought another iPhone, probably should return it and just wait for the next thing."

    Thinking like this will lead you to never be happy. You have one of the world's fastest laptops. Enjoy it. Use it. Stop thinking about what's coming out tomorrow. You have a computer that boots in 10 seconds, have fun with it.
