Ok, so my Dad bought a MacBook for me yesterday, and he wants it now. But he doesn't want mine, he wants a new one. He wants to exchange my one-day old MacBook for a new MacBook that is exactly like mine, cept still in the box. Is this possible? Or would I just have to return mine and buy a new one?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.6)

Welcome to Apple Discussions.

While I'm not sure I understand why your father would want to return your MacBook to buy an identical one he can do that. He should know that Apple will charge him a 10% restocking fee if the box has been opened.

Hope this helps.

Hi jc4p,
Yes you can exchange your 1 day old MacBook for a brand new one if you please. I hope that you arn't missing out on a new computer by your dad taking it, but I'm sure he will love it. Hope this helps.

In the United States, you can return your new computer (as long as it was not custom-configured at the factory) for a refund for any reason up to 14 calendar days from the purchase date. Apple will charge yo a 10% restocking fee for doing this. If your computer was purchased online and custom configured (added RAM, a larger hard drive or pre-installed software), then you cannot return it for a simple refund. You can find the complete sales policies here:
