Saw the box had a gash.. thought.. here we go! Surprisingly, there was no contact with the inner box actually from apple. Relieved I opened up the machine, flipped it to take off the plastic.. tada - ding in the bottom (no macbook pro box damage) It's already scheduled for a return.. but honestly this is pretty annoying. Oh well. It's not major, but I refuse to accept a dent/ding in a brand new machine for which I just payed $1500. Now this delay is going to take so long, I may as well try the ipad 2 and see if it will work in concert with a desktop. No damage to the actual box means this left apple with the dent.. pretty shoddy qc for apple. Too bad I can't use the device to see if it works for me since it's going back anyway, but I'm not about to finish the unwrap and get blamed for the ding.
