Thursday Sept 16th is the last day I can return my macbook pro to the Apple store and pay the 10% restocking fee. I got a base model 15 inch with a free 8GB ipod touch. The student education discount also saved my $100. I was thinking of returning my opened box macbook and ipod (opened only to get the barcode for a rebate I didn't yet send off). I was planning on ordering a base model with a hi-res screen. So here is the pro and con list I made. Please chime in if you'd like. Pro: -Hi res screen = More screen real estate with better quality -Better resale value and future proofing (unless 'Retina Display' comes to Mac) -No small scratch like on my 2 week old macbook pro Con: -Possibly paying ~$194 in restocking fee + losing $100 education discount + $95 for a hi-res screen [I could tell them to waive the fee because I wasn't satisfied with the quality of the screen and because I'm buying a more expensive model online] -No free ipod [Outdated iPod isn't useful unless I sell it new for around $200] -Missing 1 university lecture to travel 2hr to nearest apple store and 2hrs to come back [Could be your deal breaker but not for me ] What could you guys think? Thank you so much for not trolling my new thread [Insert User Name]!
