Do apple refurbs have scratches?

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I have a friend who wants to switch to mac and get an imac and an ipod only he doesn't want to pay full price he wants a refurb.

I know apple's site goes on and on about how good their testing etc is but they don't mention it's physical condition.

Do are apple refurbs in perfect condition? Has anyone ever bought one?

    Everything I've heard so far has been very positive, including physical condition; it appears they are virtually indistinguishable.

    From Apple website:

    "2- What are refurbished products?

    ...As these refurbished products have been unpacked and manipulated, they might however exhibit some minor cosmetic imperfection. ...

    3- What should I expect when I buy a refurbished product?

    ...The risk that your unit may present minor cosmetic imperfection, such as scratches, marks, discolouration, etc. ..."
