That's not new. <br><br>Seriously, can you see any wear and tear? A friend ordered a refurb PowerBook last year and you could tell it wasn't pristine, but it still looked good. After a few months of shuffling back and forth to the office, a new one would have looked the same.<br><br>
The only...and I do mean ONLY sign it's not brand new is there are a few marks on the bottom of it. But really, who cares. <br><br>Something else...if we're all being honest, Apple's quality control from these Taiwanese laptop manufacturers has been below-average in recent years. I'd rather have an iBook that has been inspected inside and out (as this one has, including the display) by an Apple tech.<br><br>I couldn't be happier, plus the free extra RAM was a nice bonus.<br><br>
Refurbs are more often than not in mint condition. Since a computer can not be sold as new once the box has been opened a lot of times they are just buyers remorse computers. Maybe only used a few hours if at all. refreshed on the other hand has usually seen a lot of use. Old store demos are refreshed.<br><br>
