A tier 2 wants to replace my late 2008 2.4 15inch umbp for the mid 2009 2.66 15inch umbp. He says that it will not be refurbished, however, it will be newly built from the replacement center. I asked him if it would not be refurbished and he said it wouldn't be refurbished at all. What's weird is that he doesn't want me to send in the box that came with my umbp. What do you guys think? Has anyone here have gotten a replacement with a newly built machine, than a replacement from the apple store? I'm also thinking of adding a new applecare warranty on the replaced machine. What do you guys think?
