    Just powered up my new 15" 2.7/512 GB MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. Out of the box, the machine looks perfect — no scratches and none of the screen inconsistencies others have encountered.

    The only slight concern is that, upon starting up, there was a "Recovered files" folder in the trash with a single 37 KB file inside — "Avenir Next Condensed.ttc_ATS_455_..."

    Looks like part of a font family. Any reason to be alarmed?

    maybe they reused internals and just changed the case.

    Maybe additional factory testing. Apple doesn't sell refurbished as new units.

    Thanks to both of you for the feedback.

    Is there a simple explanation for how factory testing could result in a font file ending up as a "recovered file" in the trash? (I'm not familiar, at all, with what "factory testing" entails.) Thanks.

    It's an assumption, maybe the factory take a couple of units to sample test, then restore.
