    Seriously, I knew Apple was going do something like this

    I knew something was fishy, why they silently updated the white macbook

    And guess what? I bought the white macbook, (Silly me), and Now I'm F@#$#@.

    They release a new macbook, the new macbook pro, for 13'' inch for just $1109, and it includes 2.36 whatever ghz, 2 GB ram, nvidia 9400m ddr3, aluminum casing, illuminated backtlight keyboard, led screen

    And the crappy white macbook they silently updated, and now it is outdated now



    I bought this macbook a couple days before WWDC happened, because I never expected something like this would happen.

    I opened the box. and I tore the sticker the foam pouch with the laptop inside. but I didn't touch it.

    Is there a way to return it and pay $100 for a MAJOR upgrade, seriously this is making my blood boil.

    Apple TELL US IN ADVANCE WHEN YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING LIKE THIS, YOU ARE SCREWING OVER THE COMMON CONSUMER, and you still force us to pay 15% restocking fee, without ever telling us this is going to happen


    IS there a way I can return, and pay $100?

    I'm not a troll, this is an actual post, I made this mistake

    Apple should've told us the motive why they updated the new white book

    This is Real, I'm not kidding. Seriously.

    Yup, you definitely made a mistake. It's your fault for not waiting. For not being patient.

    They did what any company did, make their product better.

    no, their motive was to bump the newer macbook into the macbook pro

    They should've told me that, and I wouldn't buy it

    I thought it would stay the same with just the major upgrade from the old macbook to the new whitebook


    So aside from all that


    Is there a way to return and not pay restocking fee?

    They don't have to tell you anything. You should've been patient. You knew a big event was coming up. You chose to purchase before the event.

    You thought wrong.

    If you bought it 2 weeks ago, you have a chance.

    You made the mistake of buying an Apple product just before they launched the new Apple product range. It's called life. Sh!t happens. Learn from your mistakes, don't mouth of about them. Package it up and try and return it asap. There's usually a 30 day return & refund policy, you may be lucky.

    Otherwise just enjoy your new Mac and forget about it.
