    Thought I'd share. Seller was just launched and has no feedback. If one were to buy this, they would be protected by Amazon's A-to-Z protection, correct? So there's potentially little risk when buying from sellers like this?

    As long as you don't mind being short $1400 for a few weeks without a product as any issues get sorted out on Amazon's end, yeah, there isn't much risk in that regard. Make sure to pay with a credit card too, just in case you need a chargeback.

    I just don't trust 'used' laptops. Who knows whether the thing has water damage or something else wrong with it.

    Yeah, I personally wouldn't purchase this myself. Just wondering if it would even be worth it to purchase a big ticket item from a new seller on Amazon.

    I would definitely be skeptical. No feedback, the price is pretty low for such an item, and no "actual" picture of the macbook. Id walk away and wait for a more trusting seller

    It's a scam. They will try to get you to do transaction outside of amazon.
