Are there scratches, dents, or small imperfections on the refurbished models?
I have OCD so I couldn't deal with those small imperfections so I just want to double check.

No. The refurbished models are as new, they simply come in a different box. They are models that have been either returned during the 14 day grace period, or have been repaired, or something similar.

Usually, as a refurbished model, the device will have been gone through a degree of quality control before being released as a refurbished model. I have bought a few refurbished models, and, cosmetically, there has been nothing to distinguish them from the brand new models.

In addition, they come with the exact same warranties and guarantees as a new model.

Thank you for the response.
I was just double checking because of the stigma that surrounds refurbished computers.
