I just recently bought a white macbook and it came with over 2000 music files is this normal?
That machine wasn't new even if it appeared to be. Apple doesn't ship the computer new with any free music. Check the battery cycles in System Profiler and see how many there are.
This is abnormal.
If it was refurbished maybe but even then it shouldnt have anything. Not normal if you bought it new.
I don't know why everybody is assuming this guy bought the macbook from Apple.
If he bought it from somebody else I suppose yeah, it could be normal.
I bought it 2 weeks ago from best buy supposidly new.
The files were under a shared user juan. when I first got it it would come up in the finder, then it disappeared then it came up again in I Chats edit buddy picture. Its under devices and over place.
I would take it back to Best Buy and get a new one right away.
Has to have been a refurb or something. Thats really unusual. How many cycles are on the battery? When was it manufactured...you can check here
When you first set it up did it show the welcome video etc?
That is not normal for sure and if you saw a user "Juan" it was not new.
Looks like Worst Buy tried to pull a fast one on you. I knew there was a reason I never shop there.
But a question... why is it taking you 2 weeks to figure out that Apple does not assume everybody that buys new macs will be named, "Jaun"?
Now that you're out of the return window I hope you can prove you ain't him.
The startup video came up and i went through the startup process. Juan isn't under user its under shared and their is 9 cycles on the battery
Could it be someone on your network? I don't know, I'm just taking a shot in the dark.
I only have one other person on my network and his name is definitly not juan.
Can Apple tell me if its refurbished or not?
Ok, the $64,000 question... Did you get this mac in a sealed box?
Regardless... stomp into Best Buy and demand an explanation and a new mac. (I really don't like those people)
Looks like it was a "open box item".
what if "juan" is someone else living around u and they set up a network with your computer?
my desktop pc has a "shared network" with my macbook and i have my music in a shared folder on my pc and i can access it from my macbook
do u have something like this when u open finder?
I'm thinking this is definitly someone near you that is sharing the files on an open network.
And if that's the case tell juan to create a password for his network.. an open network = problems
well wat if juan did it on purpose without mkwilch1 knowing...
when i set up the network with my macbook from my pc...i didnt need to authorize anything on my macbook
What's with all the best buy hate? Just because it's not the almighty Apple doesn't make it a bad store. I've had nothing but great experiences there.
Well if Best Buy resold a Macbook that was returned as new that is wrong. I like Best Buy, I go there a lot and i got my Macbook there, it was an open box deal, it was a display but they didn't try to hide it.
They made a mistake. Big deal. I've seen worse at Apple Stores. They're all in business to take your money.
You are right, someone just messed up at Best Buy, maybe they took the return and it got put in a wrong pile who knows, but it happens.
