AHHHHH.....so does this mean I can exchange it for a refurbished one?
Are you kidding?
IF Apple allows, you can pay for a replacement at these price:
ONLY Apple can tell you if they will do this.
No one else.
You cannot get a free one.
You may be able to buy a replacement at repair prices.
Please, make an appointment at the Apple store and talk to them. Asking the same question over and over here, is not of much use.
