Ok..I love this machine, I have had a great time all day just getting everything set up exactly how I want. The problem now is that my gf decided to get her own apt for school next Fall. I know I will be spending a lot of my time there, if I am not at work or in class I will most likely be over there. I am not going to live there, but I guess I will be there at least 3 nights a week. Now I am thinking a notebook will be more practical for me, I like having my computer to use each night, I don't want to do my stuff on her windoze machine.

What is the restocking fee and how long do I have?

My choices are to either return my brand new iMac that I love and pay a restocking fee and get a MBP. Or I could wait until the end of the summer and get a refurb 12" or 15" g4 pb. Played with a 12" in the store and it seems a bit small, but for just checking mail and doing small simple tasks it should be fine.

If I remember correctly the restocking fee is 10% of what you payed. Go to the Apple store and look up their return policy.

yup the fee is 10% so depends on how badly you want to change it for a MBP

Apple, think different

If it were me and I had the money then I would get a refurb MBP at the end of the summer and keep the iMac. That way you have the best of both worlds.

I'd keep it and wait til you can afford the MBP. Or, maybe another consideration would be the new MacBook's (13.3").
