Try it. This area is one of agreements between seller and buyer. Sony was not the seller so all you can do is try.

I did get it from a Sony Store.

That's the problem, I did actually buy it from a Sony Store. I guess there's no way of getting a refund then.

Thank you for the speedy reply though.

Why not ask them for the refund? The longer you delay the dimmer the chance.

Will try Monday (If they're not open tomorrow).

Well, the thing is, on the receipt, it says the product can be returned if the customer changed his/her mind within 7 days, without having opened or used the laptop.

And I've done both, so I'm not sure what the chances of me getting a refund are, but I will try tomorrow/Monday.

I've already sent an e-mail, so I'll wait for a reply from that.

Thank you for your replies, much appreciated.

Do not wait for the email reply.

Either visit the store and ask (best method) or pick the phone now. The email will likely be unanswered. Or will just be tossed.
