    legally? go cry outside an Apple Store.

    Illegal but using Apples system, I don't want to talk about it, you should not even do it, you ruin it for everyone else, including me.

    What's wrong with it? It is brand new? within the 14 day return?

    Not sure how legality enters in at all here, but it does beg the question if there's nothing wrong with it why replace it.

    I think he might be referring to those situations where users claim "damages" and then yell at apple for user negligence.

    You shouldn't. You will be abusing the system.

    Ok (though not sure why an end user would yell at apple for user negligence), but either way it's not a legal issue, just abuse of the system.

    This thread confuses me. Perhaps it's senility, but I can't make any sense of this.

    This user made a similar post a couple of days ago iirc.

    Probably not serious at this point, if at all in the first place - everyone in that thread told him/her to sell it on eBay/Craigslist.

    That's a better way to put it, abuse of the system. I really would not recommend doing that though OP. It's wrong in every possible sense. The only reason you should demand a replacement is if you've had several severe hardware issues.

    If there's absolutely nothing wrong with it, what would be the point of a replacement? There must be something...dying battery, a scratch that the OP can't stand looking at, the fans are too loud, the screen is too blue... If there's no problem then why would anyone go through the hassle of wanting a replacement? I'm thinking this has to be a troll...

    Edit: Oh, I think I see now. OP's other posts complains about it not being a gaming computer, and it's 8 months old. It was purchased from a retailer, not Apple, and that retailer has already said they wouldn't take it back as a return. OP, you had it for 8 months. It's yours, and no one will give you a replacement or a refund. You'll have to sell it, and this time, please make sure you do some homework and purchase something that suits your needs.

    Yep, that is what I was referring to earlier in this thread, I thought that there was in fact a similar thread created. Thank you for posting the specifics.

    If it's eight months old, as people have said, sounds like a 2011 MBP.

    Not doing any research before buying a Mac then complain about it and hoping to get a refund after owning it for 8 months.

    Hopeless.
