Grading System

Alta Technologies utilizes a simple yet thorough grading system for all of the Apple computer equipment we have available for resale. As with all of our products, we go above and beyond to offer complete satisfaction to our clients and customers.

Remember, this grading system ONLY describes the COSMETIC CONDITION of the equipment. As with all of our inventory, our Apple products are tested by our in-house, Apple-certified technicians and are guaranteed to be fully functional.

Our Apple cosmetic grading system consists of simple letter grades ranging from A down to F, based on the combined Mac Computer experience of our Apple-certified technicians.

Below is an explanation of our refurbished product grading system, as well as one for new equipment:

New The computer or laptop is brand new, never used, and is in its original packaging.
New, open box The computer or laptop is brand new, never used, but is not in its original OEM packaging.

A

(Excellent – Like New): Excellent condition and in 100% working order, with only the slightest possibility of minor marks due to slight wear and tear.

B

(Very Good): Very good condition. Likely to have minor scratches or marks, as well as minor corner or edge chipping. The keys may also have a slight shine.

C

(Good – Acceptable): Average condition. Likely to have medium level scratches and corner or edge chipping, as well as small dents. The keys may be slightly worn. Where applicable, screens may have faint scratches, scuffs, or cosmetic pressure marks that DO NOT affect use.

D

(Fair): Cosmetically damaged but still functions normally. Possible heavy scratches and corner or edge chipping, with possible large dents visible. Keys may be heavily damaged or missing. Possible cracks on plastic, often around hinges. Screen may show major scuffs or scratches.

F

(Unusable – for parts only): Completely worn and unusable. Possible dead pixels and missing keys.
