They still have the restrictions on non-Apple product returns and software (exchange only not return for refund after purchasing). You can find out more about it at <a href="http://www.ifoapplestore.com/db/2011/01/20/re-stocking-fee-policy-officially-changed/" target="_blank">this article</a> from the ifo Apple Store site.</p>
