    400$??? OMG I hate my country's prices! That thing would be no less than 2000$ here!!! :eek: :mad:

    Its probably the best deal you can get!

    Yep 4-500 would be a great price if you get it for that :p But almost every computer (especially Macs) listed on ebay ends up being fought for hard within the last 30-10 seconds of the auction with a massive number of bids in that time frame, which usually runs up the price way beyond what it should be :D

    And you probably already know this, but whatever you do, if you win it, do NOT pay with a money order! And check the sellers feedback. Has been a member for almost 4 years, yet only 8 transactions.....Also the 2nd & 3rd feedbacks are supposedly from different people, yet they are word for word identical......huuummmm

    Personally, I don't like the smell of what the rock is cookin! Just MHO......

    I have been a member of Ebay since 03 and only have a feedback of 11 - just some people dont use it much. I do find it odd that 2 feedbacks are exactly the same though. Also I agree on either Paypal or Cash on Delivery (can you pick it up in person?)

    I do recall from reading elsewhere that this seller is a forum member here, so it might be worth looking through their posting history to see what they're like.

    but also notice that those 2nd and 3rd members have excellent feedback, they are both powersellers. Weird that feedback is the same, but I give them some level of trust when they are a powerseller with good feedback

    um people save their bidding till the last hour or so, and some even until the last 60 seconds.

    dont get yer hopes up on high price items.

    what something went for of similar specs, this one will go for. everytime.

    yeah, the price will jump up dramatically on this in the last hour (or last 5 minutes even). no way you'll get this for $500, I'm sorry to say.
