    My BTO MBA 13/i5/256/8 just arrived

    On the side of the brown shipping box and the white retail packaging it says the model/part number is Z0P02B/A.

    Shouldn't it say either MD760LL/A or MD761LL/A?

    Is this a refurb???

    Are you in the United States?

    ----------

    It looks like a MacBook Air that is not in the united states? All the information for that model number is in Russian...

    Search for Z0P02B/A comes up with Russian language pages about a macbook air.

    I'm in the UK

    What should it say? This is fishy, esspecially as the applecare line referenced my macbook as refurbished! It has full retail, sealed packaging.

    I'm not quite sure what to tell you? I would just call Apple and tell them what is going on. Tell them you bought a new system but it is coming up as a refurbished system when you look up the model number... I'd bet they'd send you a brand new one!

    The company I work for used to be a reseller. Whenever we custom-ordered something, it had a part number similar to yours.

    BTO Macs serial numbers always start with a Z and refurbished models always start with an F.

    I found the answer - the Z model numbers are definatley used on BTOs

    If you go to the applestore and add a BTO macbook air to the basket, the part number comes up as Z0P02B/A
