    My dads friend got this macbook and they didn't give me the receipt, or the purchase date... How would I find out if I can return it to get the new macbook? This same thing happened to me last year with my old whitebook OMFG!

    This is why I hate it when people choose for you, and if its still in the 14 days can I return it to the apple store and get the 'macbook pro' ?

    O-M-F-G... I received my macbook on thursday from my dads friend, :/ hopefully that was the purchase date, and still I want to know if they will do that, or at least AT LEAST let me get the snow leopard discount.

    I think you should type OMFG several more times. As your father or your father's friend for the receipt.

    Didn't you buy it from Best Buy using your dad's friend's discount? If so, Apple Store will not take it. Best Buy probably won't do a thing without a receipt.

    When he gave it to me on thursday, he said he went and got it from the apple store, not bestbuy. I geuss he changed his mind....anyways I don't want to get my hopes up :( and my dad is probably going to get pissed that a new one came out.

    Just called my local Apple Store, they don't have them in stock. Any ideas when these babies will be in stock?

    I also just checked my warranty status since I don't have my receipt, the status date said its going to expire on june 1st, 2010, assuming he got it on june 1st, I would have only 6 days to go get an exchance at the apple store...

    Any ideas?

    Don't be sarcastic you guys :( what if they don't have it? There is only 1 apple store around my area and that is in the glendale galleria which I think is a pretty popular store I hope they have it, do I have to pay a restock fee?

    I bought the 2.4 macbook for my girlfriend and received it on the 25th of may and received it on the 29th of may. Is the refund from when its purchased or when its delivered?

    I figured I might as well change it for the macbook pro as its free and more powerful. 4gig ram instead of 2! I bought it online!!

    sorry...bought it on the 25th and received it on the 29th

    Yes- you have to pay a restocking fee. Why does it matter if it was bought with a card? It will simply be credited.

    Someone bought you a MacBook? Oh, boohoo. What a hard life. :rolleyes:

    Stop asking your questions here and ask at the Apple Store. They'll be able to give you answers a lot more knowledgeable than ours.

    I feel bad for the people who think their brand new $1200 computer is useless because a new one came out.

    My thoughts exactly; how ungrateful! Especially since, as the OP says it happened to him/her with the white macbook, this will be a second new notebook in less than a year!

    Perhaps he should start buying his own notebooks, then this wouldn't happen!

    Use it just like you would have used it before the update. It didn't suddenly get any less powerful then it was before. :rolleyes:
