    So basically, I had a 2010 MBP 15" and over the years ive had various logic board and a couple of weeks ago I had another problem out of warranty and they've offered me a replacement laptop that should be arriving soon.
    My question is this, would I be able to exchange this laptop for a new rMBP? I get a standard 1 year warranty and I am able to buy applecare on this laptop.
    How does the fact that apple are replacing my laptop affect my ability to return it?

    are you serious? They gave you a band new or refurbished computer that is several years newer than your faulty machine for FREE and that's not good enough for you?

    You want them to give you for free the brand new MBP they just announced a couple hours ago. Seriously??

    You bought a 2010 MBP, not a top of the line just released Oct 2013 MBP.
    be grateful they gave you a new mac at all.

    If it is sealed and comes with a receipt, I do not see anyone giving you an issue doing an instore exchange.

    I find some people unbelievable. It's people like the OP who ensure that Apple have to keep such high prices for Apple Care as people abuse the system.

    I understand what you all said, I was just curious as to my options and most likely won't do anything. I haven't abused the system at all. I only went in to get my laptop fixed, after a recent logic board replacement, and they offered me a new one. I didn't go in looking for a new one. Over the 3 years I've had the laptop I did have around 4-5 logic board replacements and a screen replacement.
