Hey just wondering if I return my macbook and get a macbook pro are they going to charge me a restocking fee? I just got it last week. Also, is it worth the extra 200 especially since the hd is so much smaller, and since the new one is right around the corner? I've been teetering over this decision since I bought my macbook...I just can't get the aluminum casing out of my head.

On another tangent...does the aluminum case scratch easy? and would it be better to buy a new one for 1099 or a refurb for 999?
QUOTE Thanks

I wouldn't return it, especially if your macbook you have now is working fine for you.

Apple I think does charge some sort of fee. Also, tests have shown that the shock-resistant polycarbonate on the MB resists falls better than the MBP's aluminum.

I have the original MB from before it went Unibody and it does everything I ever ask of it. Just because something new comes a long means that it makes your machine obsolete.

You know you can purchase a larger and faster HDD for less than 200 dollars right?

While the aluminum casing is beautiful and eye catching it does scratch very easily. In fact if you don't have some kind of protection or case for it just grab your keys and put a scratch in it yourself. At least then you will have piece of mind. >_<"

Haha! So true! I treat mine (1.5 yrs old) like it was made out of tissue paper and it still has a few minor scratches and one tiny dent. *shrug* What are ya gonna do? It gives it character.

Plus, people underrate plastic. It is really a good material, and resists damage very well.
