How would it be damaged? It fits snugly in the box and is packed tightly in shipments with other iPads. It's not like it gets thrown around.I'm still surprised by how they can package the iPad in a box that's the same size of the iPad. They only have the tiny paper walls of the box protecting it from any damage. I've never seen or heard of unopened iPads being damaged though.
I have, but it's very unusual to see in shipments straight from a large manufacturer because they tend to account for this before shipping. You were wondering why there aren't more unopened iPads that were damaged.The same way any box gets damaged. You've never seen a box with a dent in it?
Yea the packaging is top notch. I even have a few apple product boxes on display in my entertainment room.I don't really like the angle shot on the large side of the box. It looks like too much white space to me., so I hope that they have the face on shot on it. /shrug
Really though, I absolutely love their packaging and boxes. Those things are sturdy as hell, excellent for storing and organizing tiny things after you have the device out.
