Should you buy another Xbox because it will not turn on even though everything is plugged in?

Double-check that all the power cords are plugged in correctly, I had this problem once where I didn't have the power cord snapped in all the way to the system. Also, make sure that the power brick has a light on, when the system is off it should glow orange and when you turn on the system it should switch to green. If it stays orange, it is possibly either a problem with your power supply or the wall plug where it is connected to. If it turns green but your system does not turn on, it is a problem with your system and then, YES, you should exchange your xbox.
