    Not bad

    Try a Mac,... if you are hooked, keep the great machine which for the good price. If you are still desiring Windows... give the Mac Mini back.

    The point here.... it is FREE and NO risk to try a mac,... cept if you accidentally destroy the mini then if you break it, you bought it, but really... I hope this works out really well.... maybe they will extend it like the Employee Discount on cars keeps on getting extended.

    this is new?

    I never had a problem returning a mac if I didn't like it before...I guess the online store is just catching up (ermm, until October) with the service dealers have always offered.

    for example, clipped from CompUSA website:

    At CompUSA, we believe in being fair to our customers. If you are not satisfied with a product you purchased from us and you return the product with the original receipt or invoice within 21 days of purchase or invoice date, you may exchange the product or receive a refund

    Trying it out for free is

    Trying it out for free is a great promotion. This will give Windows users the chance they need or want to give OSX a try on a Mac.

    not free you dolts

    somehow this train of thought has turned things into 'trying for free'

    you have to pay for the machine.

    you can return it, if you so decide within 30 days...from the apple store...thus the claim 'no risk'

    no one said it was free. And as I've said before, you could always buy a mac without this risk, depending on which dealer you chose.

    Good idea

    Now do this with the garbage 23" Cinema Display. It is a POS.
