    Hi i bought a macbook pro from John lewis 8 months ago. I bought it for gaming but its not really a gaming computer. I want to get a refund or most of my money back. How can this be done ????

    You could sell it. I think thats your only option.

    Pretty sure they won't let you refund it for those reasons.

    Unfortunately you're not going to be able to get a refund, your best bet is to try to sell it on eBay, Craigslist, or some other way.

    Sell it on ebay. Or install bootcamp and play games on Windows 7, that's how I use my 2011 macbook and it runs every game I throw at it beautifully.

    If you read John Lewis's T&C's it states there is no time limit for returns.

    But I doubt you will get a cash refund.

    Probably store credit.

    I know john lewis quite well.

    They wont return after 8 weeks, let alone 8 months... Not even for store credit.

    Ebay it

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), or Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what you may be able to charge. Then adjust your price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.

    Craigslist and eBay are two of the most-frequently mentioned venues for selling.

    I also made an upgrade on my MBP and I got a smaller price amount on my Mac then what I bought it for.

    Even Apple only gives you a couple weeks, and their return policy is quite lenient. It's just too great of a potential loss for any retail store to absorb.

    This isn't something uncommon. No store is going to accept a return on an 8 month old computer. Specs and pricing change, and they wouldn't be able to sell it as new at that point.
