    My uMBP 2.66 C2D came today, should I wait until tomorrow to open it to see if I can exchange it for a new one at the Apple store? Should I call Apple store, give them the order # and see if they will do it over the phone? Or just open it and enjoy the new unibody coming from my early 2008 lemon?

    I don't even think I needed Arrandale power at all, but I'm just wondering :p

    If it's a replacement you probably wont be able to trade it anyway.

    Yeah, if it is a replacement I would assume that it is a refurb in non-retail packaging. i.e. Non-exchangeable.

    I could be completely wrong though! I have never received a replacement computer from Apple.

    All replacements are brand new in a sealed box same as if you bought it.. Even come from the same place... They have a 1 year warranty and everything.

    yeah it was a "feeler" for sale thread.

    Typing on it now, yeah for my purposes (and a free laptop) i dont need arrandale.

    if i were buying a laptop and forking over my money, i'd probably wait for the latest and greatest just because it's my money.

    I would wait, whats one day? go out and do something else to keep yourself entertained. If you can exchange it for better specs/same money then why not? whether you need it or not, its not costing you more.

    Typing on my new MBP. don't need arrandale or a gpu bump. i don't do anything that will probably push this machine anyways.
