    I'm shipping it sometime tomorrow in its original box. My problem is that I don't have the thin outer cardboard box that it came in. Is it safe to ship withou it? I'm scared UPS will see the Apple logo and treat the box like shit... should I wrap it in some brown paper? :hsd:

    You can always do what my Mom does when she sends me shit...

    Purchase some brown shipping tape (the 2" wide stuff) and wrap the entire box in it. It's harder then fort nox to get into anything she ships me and there is no chance in hell in telling what is inside through all the tape :rofl:

    :rofl: I don't want to bastardize the Apple box though :hs: I'm affraid that if I wrap the box in some sort of brown paper, it will tear along with the shipping label. Maybe I'll look for a box, but it's gonna be a pain finding the right size

    the auction isn't over yet. it's at ~$300 right now

    it's a 800mhz titanium, 1gig ram, 55gb HD, 15in iwde. it's got scratches here and there so it doesn't look as hot as it did when it was new, but it is definitely presentable.

    it was given to me, so as long as i get some money for it, i don't care how much.
