^ I edit at home. Even if the internal drives are huge, I still go external. I need one drive dedicated to running the software.

Well, April 24th was one of the dates being thrown around. Maybe I'll wake up to news of the new Macbook. Or maybe not. I have till Saturday to take the 13 inch one back.

The operating system is better. That's the biggest thing for me.

bought a refurb. had two broken USB ports. called apple. tech guy's solution didn't work. a couple days later decided to return it. called apple yesterday for a return shipping label. apple care guy literally lectured me about expecting problems from a refurb. went to apple store yesterday to return the piece of crap myself.

^ Damn, that's fucked up. Apple tells you that their refurbished shit is as good as new (minus minor cosmetic shit).

Hang in there, you'll like the computer. This is the first time I've heard of somebody getting such shitty customer service from Apple.

Weird. My brother bought a refurbed MBP from Apple and when he had problems with it, the Apple store in he bought it from in MN and the Apple store he took it to later on in NYC were both willing to help him without an hassle.

If you really want to get at the Apple care guy you had a problem with, you should report to his supervisors that he's giving out conflicting information regarding the quality of Apple's refurbished products to what's been advertised on their web site/online store.

no, the guy was supposed to be transferring me to refunds/exchanges and decided to go on a huge spiel, literally lecturing me, about refurbished products of any brand. he even said apple refurbs are sold as-is, which is just wrong information.

they are covered under the same return one-year limited warranty as new apple products and can be returned within 14 days of purchase.

I'm just not validating everything about apple you think to be true. sometimes they sell bad product and sometimes their geniuses are anything but. we can talk on an even level once you get your dick out of that hog and get your emotions under control.
