    Pretty much no from what I've read on these forums and others. You have a 2 week period only and you would have to pay the restocking fee if you were able but you're not. Sorry

    I think you are out of luck tbh. I am going to buy my first ever mac soon so i am no expert, but from what i have gathered gathering feedback on forums and from friends, after the 2 week period, there is no hope.

    I waited for 2 months, it seemed like forever, but now i am finally going to pull the trigger after the nice update yesterday.

    If you got it as a gift, then I think you should be more then happy for what you got.

    And about the two weeks return polity... if it was three weeks, and you bought or got it four weeks prior, then three wouldn't be enough... so ... :confused:

    But previous years the laptops have been updated in the fall and again in the spring - so getting one so close to the wwdc is a gamle. But sure its bittersweet, but try to enjoy your new awesome machine - it's a Mac - you can't go wrong with that :) ;)

    Ring Apple. Speak to them nicely, say it was a gift and the person who gave it is so so disappointed to. Even offer to pay a restock fee, sometimes offering this prompts them to help and then maybe even waive the fee.

    So long as you are polite, honest and push them gently, who knows... let us know how you get on.

    It's worth a try, I don't see why not. I believe the restocking fee is 10%.

    congratulation, though personally i think $200 is not worth the upgrade because the non-removable battery and the loss of express card...
