Can i be considered a source? I work at best buy. I work inventory and unload trucks. Before any iMac or MacBook updates, i can sense it. Usually, MacBooks and iMac's ship in a box. A brown cardboard box. Before the last iMac update (21.5 and 27 inch) the older 24's and 20 wernt being sent in the cardboard boxes. they came off the truck in the same box the customers take home. same with the macbook pro's. they are sent in a seperate box. and before last refresh, all the old macbooks wernt in a seperate box. and to this day, we are still recieving macbook pro's in a box. ill be sure to tell yall when i get them not in a box.
