    I bought a Macbook Air in Soho, NYC last week

    I brought it back to london and wanted to return it, but i cant do it here as I have to return it to the country that it is from

    So i rang apple soho and they said it needs to be brought in person, great!!!

    Any thoughts would be great

    Why do you want to return it? Have you changed your mind, or is it not functional?

    If you just changed your mind, you'll probably minimize your losses by selling it.

    It's pretty obvious that you have to return a product in the same country that you purchased it in, otherwise all kinds of shenanigans can occur. Plus, refunds are usually given back to the payment card, which has to be present.

    So basically, unless you're back in NYC in the next few days, you're going to have to either live with it or sell it.

    Why would you even want to return it?

    I bet you've payed for it less then the price is in UK - so just sell it and even make profit.

    If it's a base 13" I will give you what you paid for it. (I am in Edinburgh)

    size of what text is too small??? If you are in a web page just zoom in....or you can use the ctrl+scroll to zoom in on anything, or you can lower the screen resolution....small text is not a viable excuse.

    In what applications? That's often adjustable to a larger size.

    Hope you find a buyer. It shouldn't be too hard and you should even be able to make a small profit. Just got my MBA last week, otherwise I'd want to buy it off you too.

    Slightly curious - do you have an 11" or 13"?

    I thought the same when I bought mine and nearly took it back.

    1 month on, it doesn't even bother me and I don't think about it. You'll get used to the size within 3 weeks trust me. I'd keep it, you'll eventually love it.

    Yeah I had the same thing with my 11", returned it for the same reason. I don't always want to be squinting and hunching over my laptop.

    Which one did you have? I wonder if the 13" is as bad.
