    Because it is open box, you would have to pay a 10% restocking fee and shipping fees back to Apple. The return has to be done within the first 14 days of receiving the computer.

    Looks like you are going to have to try and sell your computer.

    First, I don't know of any product that can be returned after six months of use; there's no reason to believe that computers in general--or Macs in particular--would be any different. Secondly, CompUSA is (going) out of business, so the question is moot.

    Sell it on ebay, and but the new one from the refurb store. I bet you almost break even.

    It's ridiculous to try and return it after six months... The computer is working fine, if you don't really need the new computer I wouldn't worry about it. Plus I'm pretty sure that there has been another update since the initial update you are talking about.


    You'd have to sell the computer and chip in (a couple hundred) extra to get a new iMac.

    After 6 months, a problem with a machine goes through warranty repair, not exchange at the store. This is standard operating procedure for just about every tech product, not just Macs. Call Apple support, and have them walk you through a diagnosis. That's what the 1 year warranty is for.

    I think any return/exchange with the store is out at this stage, sorry to say. Are you asking about a private dealer who might make a trade deal with you? If so, I think there are options there, but you will pay more for the transaction if you go through such a dealer, instead of doing it yourself, because you have to pay for their overhead. Plus, they are not going to touch it until it is in good working order, which means starting with Apple support for whatever might be wrong with it.

    Check out any of these dealers for a trade-in.

    From Mac of All Trades:
    Below is the configuration you have submitted:
    Model:Intel/2.16GHz iMac 24
    Price: $740.00 (for selling it to them)

    From a recent ebay auction:

    Apple iMac 24", 2.16GHz Core 2, 3GB RAM, Applecare '09
    $1352

    The difference being the cost of going through a dealer. I see brand new 2.8 Ghz Alum 24" iMacs for about $2049 and refurbs for $1899 at the Apple store. So depending on how you do it, you may lose somewhere from a few hundred dollars, to upwards of $1000 or more.

    I hope some of these links will give you some ideas and resources for how to go do some of this type of research on your own. Good luck!

    Your AppleCare is limited to three years support regardless of any problems you may have, (and depending on your keyboard's layout) I think that it expired no later than sometime in 2007.

    AppleCare nor the Apple Store have anything to do with trade-ins. AppleCare is only for service on a faulty machine, and the Apple Store will only service a faulty machine or sell you a new one. They do not accept trade-ins.

    You will have to sell your old machine through other means.
