Is this a good deal for rmbp 15"?

Im about to buy a new (opened box) rmbp 15"

Come with parallel windows 7
One month old, no damages
For $2000

Is it a good deal, resonable price?

similarly configure at apple.com is running at $2500, so yeah its a good deal.

Is it at retail store, or private sale? Does it include the box and everything or just the laptop?

Its a pretty good deal. From what I remember the refurb model of that exact computer from Apple's refurb was either $2020 or $2200. So its priced about right, + you get the parallels desktop on it

We think so, especially since now you arent paying tax (you would on the refurb model). Just make sure that the seller has a good rating. I got my 15" rMBP used from ebay for $1800, i think it was the 2.4GHz one though 512GB SSD and 8GB RAM, and it had one scratch on the bottom, which I mostly forget its there.

Funny enough, mine also came with a parallels disk, but no DVD drive, so kind of useless to me at the moment =P

Check warranty status by entering serial number online:

Get an original invoice so you can transfer ownership to yourself.

In the parallels box there's a serial number

Just download parallels from there website & use the code in the box to activate

You don't need the disc

What do you mean for original invoice? Is it an original receipt?

In order to transfer ownership of the item to yourself, you need to provide Apple with the original invoice.
If the seller is not comfortable with providing this, you can request the seller contacts Apple and transfers it to you instead - he will need your name, address, email address, and phone number.

Thank you very much guys!!!

I already purchased it.. and the laptop is FANTASTIC!
It's the same as seller's description.
The only thing that is concerned me is SJA1 screen!
But I haven't seen the IR problem yet (knocked the wood)!
