    I was just wondering if anyone could comment on successes/failures with attempting to get a refund after the mbp refresh. I'm not blaming Apple in any way - I am, however, a tad sad that a) there was a drop in prices, b) there was an improvement in hardware, and c) educational promotions are giving away a free iPod touch as well.

    I had been under the impression that the usual iPod giveaway was in August, which I wasn't willing to wait for; as for WWDC I hadn't expected a mbp refresh just iPhone announcements.

    I ordered my mbp more than 6 weeks ago (yikes) - any chance I can get store credit, trade in for the new mbp, or get a free iPod out of this?

    Also, any tips in "negotiating" with the rep?

    You can ask...

    the worst that can happen is they say "no"

    Sometimes it varies by store, attitude, etc.
    Application of the "rules" is inconsistent at best

    I bought my macbook(unibody) 3 weeks ago, returned and just received the refund( deduction of 10% restocking fee) today.

    I'm not sure what you are posting this thread for. Well, free ipod is actually for anybody as long as you currently study or work in an educational instituion.

    Price drop and hardware improvement is impressive, that's Why i returned mine.
    If you bought yours in an apple store, there's good chance of full refund after good negotiation

    there're people here in this forum got the same kind price adjustment 200 dollars cash. It depends whether you would stick with your UMB or go for the MBP 13''.
