Old "New" Macbook Air?
I've had my 11" 2013 MBA for a good month or so and I've realized certain things that make me think my new CTO MBA maybe have not been so new.
First off, after installing Steam I was asked to verify the computer's name and it was automatically named "Greg-PC". Now this was bizarre since the first I installed Steam on my old make it was named "NEW-HOST".
Now today I was messing with my Wifi setting after having a few connectivity/speed issues I decided to mess with the advanced settings and noticed my NET BIOS was also named "Greg-PC".
Is it safe to assume my new CTO MBA may not have been as new as I thought?

Did you buy it from Apple? Sounds like you might have bought it from a reseller who forgot to wipe the drive on a return. Was it cello-wrapped or in an open box? Bring it back to whomever you bought it from. Not much else you an do at this point.

Nope I purchased directly through Apple. It weird thing is my computer's name was also Gregs-PC. I'll assume the NETBIOS name of "Gregs-PC" is the name that was associated with the ip address I'm currently using for my router or network.

This is Greg, and I want my computer back.
Oh, man, what are the odds that I would find my missing Air on here????
As it turned out, I had sent my brand new machine back to Apple due to a . .
Oops, just kidding ; )
