Apple has finally agreed to replace my macbook they called and left a message on the voice mail saying that they were going to replace it with a new one. Does anyone know wether that means a brand new unit or a refurb unit? Is it a retail box?
why no? refurbs come in like-new condition, so you won't be able to tell a difference cosmetically. plus they've been fixed of any problems they'd had, so they'll be in good working order..obviously your old MB was not, so what do you care as long as you end up with a working one?joebells said:noooooooooooooo
How so?xfiftyfour said:Applecare often grabs refurbs as their replacement units. I guess you won't know for sure until it arrives, though.
My experience was NOT FINE. The refurb I was sent had a bowed portion of the lower case near the latch release - about 1" long and the accessories were clearly used - not pristine - clearly different from the new retail units.oldnavy1918 said:Ref. Macs are totally fine.
One of my friends bought a Ref. iMac G4 and it worked beautifully!
