Question about MacBook Pro mid 2015 delivery and packaging

Hey guys, recently ordered a MacBook Pro 15 inch retina (2015). It was delivered on time. However the white shrink wrapped MacBook box was directly in the Best Buy packaging. I saw couple of unboxing videos from Amazon and other online retailers where the white macbook box is in another apple sealed box then in the retailers packaging. For those of you who ordered online recently can you share how the packaging was?

Thanks in advance.

Mostly for security and branding reasons. 

 

An Apple branded box would be a major target for theft.  A Best Buy box not so.

 

It is also branding.  Best Buy wants to market themselves.

 

Apple probalby had to supply the packaging to Amazon as the original packaging is not acceptable for shipping purposes.

I am not an employee of Best Buy and all opinions left on this forum are my own. Please leave Kudo’s if you like a post or click Accept as Solution if a post answers your query.
