    Hey there,

    I have a new 27" iMac but unfortunately there is a fault so Apple will be sending a currier to come and pick it up.. The only thing is I fear I may have disposed of some of the clear plastic protective packaging! Is this an issue or should I just pack it back up as close as it was to how they sent it me (minus some of the packaging).

    Many Thanks

    yeah, dont sweat the clear stuff.

    Just make sure all the styrofoam is good.

    i don't know about apple, but with sony... I packaged mine up real nice, and then they said we don't want your packaging, and just took the console full.... On the other hand, when i sent a bike part back, they weren't bothered on packaging, so long as it was 'securely packaged' so i think all you'll need is a box with some styrofoam in or something just so it doesnt get more damaged whilst being transferred [​IMG]

    Thank you for the info, thats great!

    One more question though; Do I need to format the HDD when sending it back? Or even remove my User account etc?

    Many Thanks
