    This is completely inconsequential, but my new refurb MBA is shipping from PA. All the prior refurbs I've purchased have come from China. Anyone know why?

    And yes, I'm just curious and eagerly awaiting my new toy. :rolleyes:

    New Mac notebooks come from China. Refurbs usually come from within the US. I've never heard of a refurb coming from China.

    Well, if it came from NJ, I'd say OK, but PA? No way. Send it back and ask for a CN or NJ refurb!

    LOL! Actually, most of the refurbs I've heard about came from PA. Whatcha got against the Keystone State?

    Just a guess, but when Apple releases an updated model, they call back all of the inventory of the previous model from the retail stores, to be sold in the refurb store, even though it's new (and not refurb'ed).

    I wouldn't imagine that they'd ship that stuff from the stores back to China, just to ship back to a customer.

    So hopefully when you get yours, it'll be in a new white box, not the refurb brown one. :)

    Cool. Both iPad refurbs I've had came from Shenzhen, but I haven't ordered a computer before.

    Yeah, I bet the PA one have yellow screens :p

    We have Snooki. Any state that produces her has to be better. 'nuff said :)

    PA has Biden. I've been following his exploits on The Onion. He's close, but not quite up to the same level of polished class.
