    New or used?

    How many of you don't mind if the devices you buy are used? For me they have to be new,I love taking off the wrapping or breaking that seal and when you open the box theres that lovely new smell and I like that no one else has messed with it.

    And Apple packaging is a work of art in itself....I've kept all my Apple boxes even though I'll probably never use them again :)

    I would prefer to always buy new from Apple. But I also like to save $100 to $200 on buying refurbished from Apple. If the Mac I want is available as a refurb from Apple I will get it. But only get the used Macs from Apple since they are still warrantied from Apple and are in like new condition.
