    After watching the video of the iPhone 4 and it's really amazing features, I'm gonna keep my eye on it. But last week I bought a MacBook Pro 13". Do I still have time to return? Overall, should I keep my MBP or return it/sell it for the iPhone 4?

    ...

    Do you need a phone? The two don't really overlap in terms of usage.

    why would you return your macbook pro?
    your macbook pro is a laptop, the iphone 4 is a phone
    :confused:

    You can return within 14 days but you pay a 10%restocking fee. The amount of the restocking fee is shown on your receipt.

    You can pay the restocking fee, this sounds a tad bit odd though.

    No one can really help you with deciding, they are totally different things! What do YOU want?

    However I'll say you seem unsure about what to do, and considering you'll have to pay a restocking fee, I'd keep the macbook

    a phone and a laptop are too different to get one instead of the other [​IMG] if you'd have said ipad or iPhone, it would be a different matter, just stick with your mbp

    Well seeing as Apple has shifted all of their focus to putting video editing on a damn phone and hasn't done squat to Final Cut Studio, I wouldn't blame the OP at all....:cool:

    I agree. If it doesn't have G something, it's on Apples' back burner. Soooo much of their product line is in need of a refresh. But they worry more about getting books on a 3.5" display.

    When you ask: "Do I still have time to return?" ... I think you already make your mind ;) ... go for the iPhone 4 :D

    Ask yourself this:
    * Why did I buy the Macbook last week?
    * Will an iPhone 4 do that, just as well or better?

    If the answer to the last question is "yes", then get the iPhone. Otherwise keep the Macbook. I suspect you are just being subject to Steve's RDF, and after you calm down a little you'll remember why you got the MB. (If the answer was "yes" you should never have bought the MB in the first place, whether or not iPhone4 was comming out.)

    Is this a joke?

    You can't be serious?
    These threads are getting worse and worse.
    I mean, you want to return a computer for a smartphone...

    I'm not even going to try an answer this one for you - it's that bad.

    See, I was thinking the same thing because I bought a vacuum cleaner last week. But after seeing the new iPhone 4, I'm wondering, overall, should I keep my vacuum cleaner or return it/sell it for the iPhone 4?

    Final Answer

    I got married last week. Should I get an annulment? and get an iPhone instead? This way I could call more girls and know exactly what I am going to pay. Instead of running blind like a AT&T unlimited account. Then again if I keep the wife, she will tell me what to buy and what not too.

    Thanks For all the help..

    Cmon Guys lets use this blog for what it is intended..

    Geez

    I guess they're two completely different things, though
    Buy iphone 4 if you can afford an extra fine toy:p
