    I'd be careful about that paypal protection note. They may only cover getting a delivery to your door, not guaranteeing the product advertised.

    He may also be pulling a 'since I'm outa here on the 1st, why not a big scam' scam.

    true here is the paypal info...

    13.2 Eligibility Requirements.

    To be eligible for PayPal Purchase Protection you must meet all of the following requirements:

    Pay for the eligible item from your Account.

    Pay for the full amount of the item with one payment. Items purchased with multiple payments – like a deposit followed by a final payment – are not eligible.

    Send the payment to the Seller through:

    the eBay “Pay Now” button or the eBay invoice; or

    the “Send Money” button of your Account by selecting “eBay Item” and entering your eBay User ID and the eBay item number for purchases on eBay website; or

    the Send Money tab on the PayPal website, by clicking the “Purchase” tab, or by selecting the “Checkout with PayPal” button or otherwise selecting PayPal as part of a Seller’s checkout flow.

    Open a Dispute within 45 Days of the date you sent the payment, then follow the online dispute resolution process described below under Dispute Resolution.

    Have an Account in good standing.

    For items purchased on eBay look for either a PayPal or eBay purchase or buyer protection message in the eBay listing. If you see a message, and you meet the eligibility requirements, then your purchase is covered by PayPal Purchase Protection. The purchase or buyer protection message will vary based on the eBay website. The message must appear on the top part of the listing and not under the “Description” or “Shipping and Payments” tabs. If the listing does not include the purchase or buyer protection message, then it is not eligible for PayPal Purchase Protection.

    13.3 Ineligible Items. PayPal Purchase Protection only applies to PayPal payments for certain tangible, physical goods. Payments for the following are not eligible for reimbursement under PayPal Purchase Protection:

    Intangible items, including Digital Goods
    Services
    Real estate, including residential property
    Businesses
    Vehicles, including motor vehicles, motorcycles, caravans, aircraft and boats
    Custom made items
    Travel tickets, including airline flight tickets
    Items prohibited by the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy
    Items which you collect in person, or arrange to be collected on your behalf, including at the retail point of sale
    Items that violate eBay’s Prohibited or Restricted Items Policy
    Industrial machinery used in manufacturing
    Items equivalent to cash, including prepaid or gift cards
    PayPal Direct Payments
    Virtual Terminal Payments
    Personal Payments

    Don't know how much of that applies, since he's not selling on an EBay site. I may be wrong, and the only thing you risk is not having your money for a couple months, while the dispute process finishes.

    also, why would he make a site just to sell 1 laptop?
    also, why would he sell a brand new , unopened 2300$ laptop for 1000$?

    If it's too good to be true, then it is. I believe GGJstudios has a lot of information about purchasing macs online. Maybe he will post here.

    It's not just one. It's 'A limited supply' and offer ends soon. He may be planning to burn his site on the 1st.

    Why go overboard with emphasising the paypal protection? Stated twice, with a link as well. Trying to lure the unsuspecting buyer in.

    Paypal protection means nothing from some of the other horror stories I've seen. Move on. It's a scam.

    I purchased from this seller.

    I purchased from this seller and recieved my merchandise as advertised. :)

    I think they just try to get what they can for companies going out of business.

    I checked the serial numbers with apple and everything was legit. They took down there website but you can still email them at- macpro725@live.com

    It's a shame there is all this bad talk about them. I had an excellent experience and could not ask for a better deal.

    Just so everyone notices, this poster registered just to make this post. Very likely this and the OP are the same guy that own that site. Do NOT take this recommendation seriously
