On the bottom of the box there is some information about the laptop along with the technical specification of the laptop itself. On the sides of the box there is some samsung branding and not much else. The box is pretty standard and is recyclable, it isn't presented to well but it is a strong and durable box and it protected the laptop well in transport. When you open the box there is the laptop protected by plastic material. When you lift out the laptop the cardboard box splits up into different compartments. There is a power supply and plug which is also protected in plastic and also there are some booklets containing information about the Samsung rv51.

Apple Magic Mouse Review

Apple Magic Mouse - mouse Packaging and Accessories When you buy the magic mouse depending on where you bought it from the packaging is very nice. I bought mine online and it arrived in a cardboard box and then inside the cardboard box there is a clear box with the magic mouse sitting inside. The box is a clear plastic and on the bottom there is a little information about the magic mouse and on the bottom there is also some writing and information. When you open the box you lift out the magic mouse which has a plastic cover on it to protect it. Underneath the mouse itself is the books with information about the mouse and that is all that is in the box. I think that the presentation is excellent and the box is also very nice. I dont think that it would be damaged in transport as it is very well protected and also the box is very strong. Build and Features The Apple Magic Mouse is white in colour on the top and is a metal i believe is aluminium on the bottom. The whole top of the mouse touch, this removes all of the physical buttons and the scroll wheel that you usually find on normal keyboards. The mouse uses Bluetooth to connect to computers and macs and on the bottom is the sensor to recognize the mouse. The mouse uses AA batteries as a power source and if you look at the bottom of the mouse you will find a little button that if you click removes the cover for the batteries.

The box is white all around with all the information about where the keyboard was made and designed and other additional information on the bottom in silver writing. On the top of the of the box there is a very big picture of the keyboard itself, on the right of the box is the apple logo and name in silver writing.

Underneath the keyboard you will find the warranty and additional information, you will also get two apple stickers. Other than that there is not much in the box. Overall I think that the packaging is excellent and it definitely will not get damaged if you order the keyboard from online as it is well packaged. Build and Features Because this is the wired version you do have a wire attached to the keyboard and the keyboard is of reasonable length, it should be long enough to connect to any computer.

Apple iPod Touch (4.GEN.) Packaging and Accessories As far as I know the IPod touch packaging is all the same no matter if you buy it online or through a shop.

On the sides of the box is the silver writing that says iPod touch and there is also the apple logo on the box. On the back of the box there are the specifications of the device and there is also what is included in the box. Once you tear of the plastic then you can lift the plastic lid of the box. When you open the box you lift out the iPod touch which is resting on top and then you see this little cover which houses all the books about learning to use the device and warranty’s and such. Once you lift the books out of the box there is another compartment which houses the usb cable that the IPod touch uses to charge and to connect to the computer. There is also the wall charger that comes with the device and the typical apple white earphones that come with all apple devices like this. The device also comes with two apple stickers which are pretty cool. All the accessories like the earphones are separated by a clear plastic cover which is very easy to take off.

Kobo Touch E-Reader Review

Kobo eReader Touch 2 GB Packaging and Accessories If you order the KOBO online then the box that it comes in may be different as I went in store to buy the Kobo Touch, also the packaging may differ depending on where you order the Kobo touch from. The Kobo touch comes in a box with a picture of the Kobo on the front and the specifications on the top. The back of the box holds additional information about the Kobo and so does the one side of the box. You open the Kobo up from the side and you pull out the contents like a drawer. The box then splits into two where on the right the Kobo Touch is found and on the left are all the wires and the guide on how to use the Kobo. The Kobo touch is protected by two pieces of hard foam on the top and the bottom which do a good job of keeping it still, there is a plastic screen protector on the front of the Kobo and the Kobo is surrounded in cardboard to keep it safe. The packaging is actually quite strong and stylish so during transport the Kobo should be perfectly safe.

The build quality is great with the device looking very sleek and it is easily held in one hand. The soft touch material is also of very good quality, it is scratch resistant and also fingerprint resistant.
