One of my co-workers claimed that Apple never gives new computers or devices as replacements. All replacements are refurbished. While that may be true in certain instances, I'm not too certain in my case. What do you think? I bought an early-2011 MacBook Pro at the end of February (within days after they were launched) then within the 2-week period, I brought it back for another MacBook Pro out of fear my computer was an overheater. Given that I replaced the computer so soon after the launch, how could the replacement have been refurbished? It came in a new box and all.
