I called Apple today to check out the trade-in program since I bought my PowerBook relatively recently (End of Aug). Frankly, I didn't think I was eligible but I figured it was worth a phone call. The woman on the phone said that it wasn't eligible because it was a refurbished unit, almost as if to say that it would have been eligible otherwise! Is this true? Does Apple disclose this? Has anyone else tried the trade-in program, and if so, what is the time limit? Thanks.
