I have a 21.5 inch base model imac. It appears to have moderate yellowing on the bottom 1/3 of the screen so thinking about returning it today when I go to the Apple Store for my broken iphone. I was thinking about jumping to the 21.5 with the 1TB drive and dedicated graphics card if I do exchange. Is it worth the jump? Thanks

Don't get your hopes up, I doubt they'll let you upgrade with the exchange.
If the OP is still within the 14 days doing an upgrade on the exchange should be no problem! :rolleyes: Apple loves it when you decide to upgrade and buy a more expensive system. :D Not sure why you would write what you did.

I agree...just as long as you are within that 14 days you can upgrade, downgrade, return. You will probably end up paying a restocking fee though if you upgrade.

Well, yeah, within 14 days, and WITH a 10% restocking fee. Hardly seems worth it then.

I agree. Going to keep what I have. Was also a bit unhappy about the yellowish tint on the screen but not bad enough to warrant risking something worse. Gonna enjoy this one

Yes, that is true but I bought it Black Friday for $100 off so I would have to pay the difference to upgrade and the $100 as well.
Now that is a completely different issue than whether or not you can upgrade without having to pay the restocking fee on a damaged Mac. You should have said that from the beginnning. :rolleyes:
