    I don't plan on returning mine... but this fee is something to consider. Do all the other places like Best Buy hit you with a 10% restock fee like Apple does? I know that Sam's Club doesn't but beyond that... no clue. And I'm pretty sure these other stores besides Apple also have 30 or more days to do an exchange/return. The only reason I can see that I'd need to worry about this is changing either the color or storage size. Either would constitute this fee being assessed.

    [EDIT] Ok thanks to HXGuy and Google, I see that Apple no longer charges the fee. Good deal since Personal Setups pretty much made that fee absolute...

    If I remember correctly, Apple did away with their restocking fee a while ago.

    Ahhh... so apparently this happened in January after doing some searching. Good to know. That makes this a little easier, thanks!

    Best Buy dropped their restock fee before Apple did, IIRC.

    For iPads, Best Buy's return window is the same as Apple's -- 14 days.

    AFAIK, Walmart doesn't charge a re-stock fee either, and gives you 15 days to return something like an iPad.

    Target does look like it charges a 15% restock fee for "portable electronics".

    Thats great I was worried about getting buyers remorse about the color I choose. Glad to know I can exchange it in 14 days if need be. I'm defiantly getting the 64 gig 3g though.

    On the contrary. I am having to pay a restocking fee to Apple for my iPad I bought a week and a half ago.
