    Well? Did you dump it, stick it under the bed (actually, it won't fit under mine), stick it on top of the wardrobe, what? I think the iMac box is such a thing of beauty (I know, I know...sad) that I'm really reluctant to throw it out...but what am I meant to do with it? Apart from trip over it every day because I still have it on my office floor.

    keep it, actually, I'm pretty sure you can sell them for like 20 bucks here.

    I'm keeping it for the day I sell it. Just sold my old G4 Quicksilver machine, and I wish I still had the box. Much easier for shipping.

    i still have mine. i'm a student and have to drive back and forth 300 miles every few months. so moving an iMac without damaging it would be hard without the original box and packaging.

    I put a $1,500 Apple Store gift card inside and will use it as a door prize for our company meeting in two weeks.

    Always, always keep the box - not only is it really useful to use in the instance of a send away repair but I've found it adds real £'s to eBay bids !!! ;)

    After one week of use to make sure the iMac had no issues I flattened it and stuffed it in the recycling bins at the end of the street (the box, not the iMac haha). Our apartment simply isn't big enough to keep packaging.

    Okay, based on these replies I'm even more reluctant to throw it out.....but it takes up SO MUCH SPACE!

    Mines in the attic. I always keep the boxes for resale purposes. Nothing worse than looking for a box to fit when you want to ship it!

    Do you have an attice? Maybe a couple feet of crawl space under your house? Wrap in it a garbage bag and toss it down there.

    It really is up to you remember It's just a box if you have no room get rid of it.

    I kept it for transportation, and simply because I'm a packrat when it comes to boxes -_-

    I say the same things about all of my Apple Stuff. I really don't keep any other boxes, but the Apple boxes are hard to part with and I always feel like I might need it one day...I have several Apple TV boxes, iPhone, iMac, Powerbook G4 (which I absolutely don't need anymore, but I can't throw it out), Bluetooth Headset, a bunch of accessories over the years, and bunch of software boxes (but those are necessary to keep).

    Come to think of it, why on earth have I kept all my other :apple: boxes ?, I just realised I've still got keyboard, mouse and airport express boxes at the back of my study cupboard - even now I'm not sure I really want to throw them out..................hmmm strange :confused:

    Ha ha..........just found an Apple Store carrier bag - saw one of those on eBay once too !!!!!

    My plain brown box is still in the basement. I need to find a place for it or throw it out soon.

    haha, is that a 24 inch imac box? wow, bet they will guess its an imac, till they open to find a little card in it...

    the brown shipping box is useless, keep the imac box


    I kept my imac box for transportation, i dont feel like buying an ilugger, its just a waste of money, I don't take my imac anywhere, if it do, its to the apple store, and i wouldnt buy an ilugger, i use the box to put it into. mine is in the storage along with the macbook box, and macbook pro box
