Hi, I'm interested in buying a new 2.4 Ghz macbook pro 17" with the optional high-def (1900X1200) matte screen and 7200rpm 160Gb hd to do my Hi-Def video editing. Due to our prices and taxes, it would end up costing me between $3500 and $3800 to do this at an authorized apple retailer here in Winnipeg, Canada, or through Apple.ca. I've noticed that there are a surprising number of these exact machines available "new & sealed in the box" on ebay for $2500 - $2800. Even with the shipping and exchange I could stand to save up to $1000. Seemed too good to be true until I started messaging some of the people on ebay who'd just recently purchased these machines from these sellers. Most were thrilled with the machines they'd received and the prices they'd paid - and these were some longterm ebayers with losts of feedback. There's one guy from Santa Rancho Margarita that's selling one for around $2500. I talked to someone who'd already bought this exact machine from him only last week and he told me that the machine arrived and is exactly what was promised. What I can't figure out is, where do these ebay sellers come across four macbook pros with hi-def screens and 7200rpm hds to sell on ebay? Is it too good to be true, or just a great deal?
