Im not the only one!!!!

Yesterday I received an sms from Aramex telling me that my shipment has arrived, so i went there to pick it up. Two packages as requested, went home acted like a tech. freak getting the HYPE over a new piece of technology :D "well not so new but its new to me" snapping pictures and all, for the packages and unwrapping them. First package was as requested, the softwares are a ok :)

MS Office 08 for mac & iWork

The second package which I kept unwrapping slowly :D and taking pictures all the way since it had تفاحتي المقرومة

I ordered a MacBook [MB403LL/A 13.3" Laptop (2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 2 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive) White] , since I have a plan to own also other stuff from Apple, I chose this one particularly to start the familiarization stage and begin the shift to mac with and it is:

1- Very affordable.
2- Has specifications that I need and a little more.
2- Storage very convenient since I don't keep much files on the local hard drive, I use an external one for security and backup.
3- Its size is perfect for me, very easy to handle.

Along the unwrapping process I was checking my name all over it, the invoice is correct, right item, correct billed amount, right product description

Holding my breath!!! I was so excited to see this in my own hands :D

and then!!!!

With the hype that hit me I thought naaa this is just an ad for the black! not reading whats posted about the product information, I was in denial actually!

then the reality hit me, I unwrapped it fully to see that I got the MacBook [MB404LL/A 13.3" Laptop (2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 2 GB RAM, 250 GB Hard Drive) Black] which only differs from the one I ordered with the external color! and the HD is bigger, hence the price difference. I loved the Apple white why would I want a black one! most of the laptops are black/ grey!!!

I was in shock and disappointed, I want my WHITIE :( 160GB not the bigger black one, its a good device but its not what I requested nor paid for, its not right to take something more expensive than the one I paid for. So when I decided to replace it there was a condition that you are obliged to deliver it to Amazon! meaning that I will have to PAY for shipping !!! why??? its their mistake, they want their item they should pay all the fees, however they clearly stated that they would bring the replacement item at no charge from my side! still to get the one i have to them I have to pay! and as I said this morning in "Some Contrast"
حريمتهم ادفع لهم و اهم غلطانين

So I sent an e-mail, which they said they wont be able to replace it right now however someone will contact me in 24 hours! I will wait and see.

I faced a problem with they require that your billing address is the same as your shipping address which is not the case with me.


True. only i put it back to its box till this mess is resolved! :(

Perhaps you could sell the black Macbook and get a white one? Although like you said, the black one is superior in specs.
