It was brand new, no doubt about it. Everything was factory sealed. I called Apple before I bought it and asked same question about warranty. Yes it I covered for 1 year, the same as if you bought it at Best Buy or Apple store. I am an Apple customer, the same way I bought my iPhone from a AT&T store. Covered. Any more questions, fire away. The price on Amazon is incredible!!
It's a used laptop, but it should come in the original box with all the original accessories and manuals. I tried checking online to see if I still had the one year warranty, but I couldn't figure it out. I still have to call them to see if I have it.
