I just bought a 'brand new, opened' MBP off eBay but I suspect it isn't as new as I expected, so I thought id run it past forum members as you've probably bought new mbps from apple before and know what doesn't sound right first is the box isn't sealed, its in a lose fitting clear plastic cover. i seem to recall apple products being shrink-wrapped tightly around the box i notice a second layer of seal tape by the box's plastic handle, under the one I have to cut through to open the box the front of the laptop has light marks under intense light - like very faint mud or dirt from a dirty set of hands the side has a black mark, like aluminum has been worn off. i daren't clean it more thoroughly in case it wipes clear and i'm left with no evidence. i did have a thought that it might be off the black plastic housing that the box contains the mbp in, acquired through a bumpy journey? lastly, the aforementioned black plastic housing of the box has a half inch gap between it and the sides, meaning it moves about in the box. weird. well he doesn't accept returns so i'm gonna have to open a case, but i thought id get some advice (reassurance) that backs up what i'm thinking. I'm starting to hate eBay .
