Apple Offers Money Back Guarantee with Mac mini 30-Day Test Drive

Apple Offers Money Back Guarantee with Mac mini 30-Day Test Drive

by , 4:55 PM EDT, August 30th, 2005

Apple Computer has launched a new program to entice people to the Mac platform called "Test drive a Mac mini." The program allows users to purchase a new Mac mini, including an optional Apple keyboard or mouse, and use it for 30 days. At the end of the 30 days, if the user is not satisfied with their Mac mini, they can return it, along with the mouse and keyboard, to Apple for a full refund.

From Apple's Web site:

We're so confident you'll love your new Mac mini, we'll let you test drive it for 30 days with no risk. If you decide you don't want it, we'll take it back. Here's how the test drive works:

  1. Purchase a new Mac mini from the Apple Store online. You can also get an Apple keyboard and mouse, such as our new Mighty Mouse.
  2. Set it up and start enjoying it.
  3. If you don't love it, call us within 30 days of your order and we'll arrange for you to return your system including the Apple keyboard and mouse for a full refund.

If you have any more questions, call our Mac specialists at 1-800-MY-APPLE.

The program ends on October 31st, 2005. You can find more information at Apple's Web site.

Thanks to our friends at MacNN for the heads up on the new program.
