    I have another question about the Refurb program at Apple. When you buy from the Apple Refurb program do they ship it to you in a brown box or do you get the original boxing? (yeah i know, weird question, but it came up in my head and i didnt know the answer so...im turning it to you guys.)

    I've bought two refurbished items, and they both came in brown boxes.

    Brown. To stop you selling it on eBay as brand new.

    well they recently switched over to a white box, with grey writing and apple logos, that look more like the boxes for the mighty mice, and accessories. but that was for the ipods atleast. maybe they switched over the computers too.

    My refurb of the new model Airport Extreme base station arrived. The box is brown. A perfectly lovely box - I couldn't have hoped for more... :D

    People here in NYC sell just the boxes pretty often. Usually around $10. I'm going to grab one for my macbook at some point soon.

    As of a month ago it was definitely brown for the MacBooks.
