I bought a MBP (returned later, long story, nothing to do with the comp, pricing and warranty issues through school) and it arrived in a cardboard box that snuggly hugged the actual MBP box.
When my monitor came in, and I got a call saying I received it (I wasn't at home, I had someone there in case they came today) they said what it was...I was shocked that they knew what it was. I asked how they knew and they said they were reading the box...I thought it was odd.
When I got home and saw it, I was kind of taken back that it was the actual product box. I would think a high dollar item like that would be sealed so no one would know what it was.
But now that you say thats how it ships, makes me feel much better!
Thanks...always like to be carefull
