    So the UPS man has just took my Macbook Pro Retina (Received last week) off my hands to send back to Apple for my replacement. I checked the status of my order and it was a like for like replacement being built.

    I've just gone back to check and now my original replacement order has now changed to "Cancelled - Replaced with a new product". Upon checking they've now given me a 2.6GHz i5 along with the same specs I had before.

    Does this mean that I will be getting one of the literally brand-new just launched 2014 refreshed models? If I ring Apple to clarify will they cancel this and give me the old one?

    That's what it looks like to me...time to change the specs in your signature!!!

    It's all come so fast. I'm actually feeling cheered up about this replacement. I suppose because I've ordered a replacement when the refreshes were due for going on sale and my replacement was still processing, they've just cancelled and upgraded everyone to a 2014 model. I was kicking myself when I ordered my original like "Oh I should have ordered the 2.6GHz".

    Maybe once the refreshes are out and you're in the middle of an order they have to give you the new one?
