From browsing the forums, I noticed many people are antsy about buying a refurbished Mac product. I have purchased several refurbs from Mac (Mac Mini, Time Capsule) and now a new Macbook Air. I've decided to post for those of you sitting on the fence about buying a refurb. I attached some pics so you know what you'll be getting. As you can see, it sent in a standard shipping box. Upon opening the box, the accessories are packaged in a neat box. The prize is just below, well wrapped in a protective plastic film. When examined carefully, there are no dents scratches, or any other cosmetic issues. From a computer standpoint, I have had zero issues with the Macbook Air so you guys can read actual computer reviews elsewhere. Overall, I highly recommend to those of you thinking about buying a refurb to go for it. Save a few bucks (I spent mine on a bag and skin for the Air) and enjoy your new computer.
