    Not gonna happen. It is your fault for giving your laptop away.

    Once you get 100 posts you could try to do a trade here, or try craigslist.

    look into getting an eeePC, if you don't need a high specced machine on the go they look pretty cool, could wait for the new model appearing in august however

    ive seen the eee, i hate the standard os, xandros or whatever, and im not going to install xp

    the bottom line is i want a mac, and i also want a computer with a useable keyboard. good idea though

    Sell the iMac, shouldnt be hard. Take the cash you get, add a bit more, and buy a macbook. Dont think there are any 'loopholes' to allow a return 2 months after your purchase.

    Or maybe find someone that would trade an older macbook.

    There is no loophole, especially considering that your iMac is now more than 2 months old.

    Your best bet is to sell it via ebay or Craigslist and put the cash towards a macbook (refurbed would really save some money, as you already surmised).

    Otherwise, let it be a lesson to you: the portability of a notebook is priceless (or in this case, perhaps not).

    Seems like a pretty good idea really. You should be able to get almost all of that $849 from selling to cover the macbook.
