What makes an Airport Express 'refurbished'?

Hello!

I'm planning on getting a new Airport Express (N with Airtunes) soon. However I noticed that there are refurbished models which are cheaper.

I know that for iPods, they change the screen, outer casing, battery and replace any broken parts... I would like to know what parts are replaced in a refurbished Airport Express... and can I expect the product to be of the same quality as a new one (apart from a pretty box).

Cheers

I just bought a refurb express couple weeks ago and it came in a pretty white box and basically looks brand new.
