    I'm looking to buy a Macbook Pro 15, the only problem I have is deciding on the screen resolution. I am unable to go look at one in store as the closest store is over 2 hours away.

    I am just wondering if it is possible to return a macbook pro high res if I am unable to read the text on the screen.

    You can return it within 14 days of receiving it, but if it is opened (which it obviously will be since you need to play around with it to see if you like it) you must pay a 10% restocking fee.

    But believe me, you won't regret the hi-res and will have no reason to return it. :)

    I have absolutely no regrets of going with the high res. Get the AG though. I do regret getting glossy sometimes.

    LOVE my Matte Hi-Res screen! Wife has matte standard res, so I see both every day! I definitely Would not go back to standard res.

    Is this true? I thought that you could not return "custom" configured laptops.

    Sure you can.

    What you CAN'T return are custom engraved products.

    High res glossy all the way ^^ had a look at the AG option but the silver border just makes the laptop look tacky and weaker and more prone to damage compared with the glossy. :)

    If text seems too small you can always increase the font size, not had to do this since having my macbook pro 15" yet ^^

    Would someone be kind enough to post a photo of the engadget website or somthing. I would love to see how it looks text wise.

    ^^ problem with a screenshot is it's impossible to see what it truely looks like. when you view the image on a different screen size/resolution it won't be accurate.

    Here's a screenshot of my high-res i7. View this image full-screen on a friend's laptop with a 15" screen - either Mac or PC. It should give you a good approximation of text size... better than a picture from a camera since you're actually seeing it in person. I am using Safari's default text size.

    To be honest, I actually wish it was higher resolution at times. Some PC laptops have 1920x1200 or 1080p.
