Do refurbished apple products come in the original box or just a boreing brown box ewwwwwwww.
A refurb iMac G5 I bought one time came in a brown box ... my guess is that they all do!
All refurbs come in a brown box. New boxes are for....new items.
Brown box and i dont get why people are eew about it. You're buying the product not the box....well my view anyways
yeah but the boxes are very pretty and increase resale value.
Yeah so you can't buy a refurb and resell it as "new."
They only increase the "resale" value by about 20 dollars, pounds whatever. It's not that important. Besides. Be clever and state "original packaging". Ooh, I should be a politician.
Truth is, buy for now, don't sweat the resale crap. Seriously. If you smoke, smoke in your house. Enjoy the damn thing and worry about that bridge when you cross it.
My refurb iMac G5 came in the original box
My PowerMac G5 came in the original box with a big bright green "refurbished" label.
i dont care that much about resale i just like apple boxes sheesh.
My iPod came in a brown box, i didn't know that Apple ships original packaging sometimes, but I think that is a rarity. The large majority of boxes are just plain brown.
I saved over $400 on my PowerBook with a refurb. Needless to say, I didn't care about the brown box!
