    Very lazy seller - price isn't that low. Purchased that exact same MBP with about 10 months AppleCare for 1025 off eBay. Mine came with a Samsung 830 256GB SSD - had scratches.

    I like the expansion ports it has, would like to know, where the seller copied that from:

    Just the generic eBay auto fill info - which is almost always flawed.

    Then you are right with the laziness. Strange, that someone owning a Mac for two years does not make the effort to at least get to know the ports on that thing, but then again, I am driving lots of cars during the year and do not take the time to get to know them either. Lazy me.

    I find it strange that someone wants to sell something - but does nothing to make it appealing.

    If you had more posts you can buy the exact MBP from me off the Marketplace here on MacRumors.

    Sounds like the battery is going to die. I would send this seller an eBay message to ask how many cycles this laptop has passed, and what is the % of the battery from Max capacity. If it's close to 80%, I would not purchase it since you would need to add $180 (pre taxes) to replace the battery.

    Get Serial Number
    Ask for more pics - screen shot of the battery info
    Any damage / scratches / dents
    Does it include Snow Leopard discs
    Does it come with the original box


    When you get serial number - check it here - https://selfsolve.apple.com/agreementWarrantyDynamic.do

    serial number does a lot of good thing.
    Make sure the seller take a screen print of the serial number on the about my computer screen.
    I was scammed once on buying a 2010 mbp 17" with seller sent a 2006 mbp with battery bulging, a piece of scam artist work at best, I end up getting refund from ebay, my loss was the return postage.
