In general, only the original person who bought the laptop can return it. There are several scenarios this can play out. Was this billed to your dad's credit card? Did you get a gift receipt? Generally, when an item is returned the item is refunded to the original method of payment with a valid receipt. If it's an online purchase, if it gets returned it will be refunded to the original method of payment.
Lots of things to think about here. Can you give more info on how its purchased.

If your in Boston and he is in Boston you may be best off bringing him to the store with you.

Good afternoon, andrealeon,
Welcome to our forums, and thank you for posting your question! With such a major purchase like a new MacBook Pro, I completely understand why you’d want to make sure you’re getting one that is right for you, so it makes sense that you’d want to exchange the one you received for the one you want!
It looks like we’ve got a few of our Super Users offering their insights here, and I hope you’ve found their advice useful. As they’ve mentioned, our Return & Exchange Promise would generally require the original purchaser to return or exchange their purchases with us, given their product, a copy of their receipt, original form of payment, and a valid photo ID. You’ll find this information outlined in the terms of our Return & Exchange Promise.
Assuming all other terms of our Return & Exchange Promise are met, I recommend visiting your local Best Buy store, to explore what options are available to you at this time.

the laptop is in the box at my address in miami, and the original receipt is also over there. my dad is in boston with me right now. when i fly back to miami i i want to exchange the laptop to a different one, is that possible yes or no? he will not be present with me bc he resides in boston not miami. but he can give me a copy of his license and i have the receipt. the box is under my name. i just want to exchange the laptop for a different thats on your website.

Welcome back, andrealeon,
As mentioned, if the terms of our Return & Exchange Promise are met, and you’re still within the return and exchange period of your laptop once you get home, I recommend visiting your local Best Buy store to request their assistance in getting this MacBook Pro exchanged.
