    With the new 17 inch coming out I was wondering if anyone knows if apple offers any kind of exchange program? I bought my 17 inch MBP 4 months ago "fully loaded" and if I could exchange it and pay a fee for the upgrade I would be very interested.

    So I just thought I would ask on here before I called apple.

    I don't believe they offer any exchange system at all. If they did it would be the first I've ever heard of it (Having used Macs for many many years).

    Did you not follow the Apple keynote in October 2008 where they said they were offering the new 17" notebook with bumped up specs because it wasnt yet a Unibody model? - I know they didn't specifically say that but I would have thought it was obvious to anyone who watched the keynote. Its the reason I and I would think nearly everyone on here who was interested in the 17" held off. :confused:

    Nope, sorry.

    But there are 3rd parties that will give you cash for your purchase.

    ebay,craigslist, mac2sell - take your pick.

    If you look at your receipt, you will find the date that the computer can be returned by. I bought a MBP on 10/2 and returned it on 10/14 when the update was released. If your MBP is four months old they will not allow you to return it.

    All computers purchased after the MacBook update in 2008 were eligible for return up until January 9th. You had your shot with Apple.
