    so...I went to a US. Marshalls Auction a few weeks ago and they had a beautiful 20" Aluminum Cinema Display w/ iSight! Most people there were just old farmers or people just wanting to get a deal. So I bought the Aluminum Cinema Display w/ iSight for 200.00 cash. Did i get a good deal? It's still under applecare from the original (IN JAIL NOW) owner.....if it like ever breaks or something like can apple fix it even though i'm not the original owner?

    200?

    Come on, are you serious? You're actually asking if $200 is a good deal for a 20" ACD ($700 new) and an iSight (not available, going on eBay for $250+)??

    God I'm sick of these threads. I need to stop reading this forum.

    You Stole It CrabbyDaddy

    That would be a 10-4 CrabbyDaddy. You got a steal of a deal and yes the AppleCare transfers to you. Call Apple to tell them you're the new owner. Congrats! :eek: :)

    you could easily sell those both, and get a 24" dell.

    Bringing the total value of your offer to what, $253.50? I'd almost have enough profit there to buy a Big Mac with fries... if you don't count the cost of gas. :)
