So you didn't get it from Apple? Sounds like a best buy "return" to me.

Best Buy is notorious for selling Macs that have been returned and the customer not knowing any different than saving $50.

It's not called Worst Buy for nothing!

I would wager a large sum of someone else's money that some moron Geek Squad flunky carefully opened the iMac, installed Windows 8 in Boot Camp and carefully sealed the box up to appear as though it was fresh off the plane from Shanghai. Or as others have speculated, it was returned and the sleaze-balls just made sure it appeared "new" and unloaded it on the OP.

Now if this had come out of an Apple Store . . . . .

Ok, so now we know that Best Buy sells used/returned iMacs as "new". But is this news? Is anyone surprised that BestBuy would do this? it would be interesting to see what Apple has to say about it.
