    Well if it too good to be true then it is by logic false

    Claims that it is still in box and untouched. Wrote an email but haven't heard back yet. Did you see those extras? Alone they are worth 1900

    How many times do we have to say this, gang?

    ANY NEW MAC DISCOUNTED MORE THAN 5% IS A SCAM.

    I'll be wrong on that statement about 0.1% of the time, I admit, but it is simple as this - Apple's wholesale price to their best dealers is 4% - 7% off retail on the CPUs (a bit more on selected accessories) so any deep discounted "new" machine is either - not new, stolen, or non-existent.

    Also, stop and think a moment. If it is unopened in the box, how does it come with $4000 worth of pirated software?

    These are not included by Apple.

    Now, the seller has proven they are willing to lie and steal by offering pirated software with their sale. Why would you imagine they would cheat Apple, Microsoft and Adobe but not cheat you?

    C'mon...
