    Thread title. Came across a brand new, still sealed, 2016 model in gold (I'm not partial to it. Probably one of my least favorite colors) for 800. Do you guys think this is a very good deal or a meh deal. I had the 2015 macbook when it first came out and returned it as the entry price was a bit high for what I paid. Also, the redesigned MBP I'm assuming will be lighter but not as light as the macbook (although it will be a great deal faster).

    considering most places discount it to about $1100... seems almost too good to be true. make sure it isn't (too good to be true). at that price, gold would look just fine... :cool:

    Yes it's a good deal. Heck, if I were you I'd turn around and sell it for $1000.

    Are you SURE that this is a "brand-new, still sealed" rMB? Maybe you didn't know that it's easy enough for people to put what looks like original factory plastic sealing on a box which has in fact been opened and where the product inside might not be brand-new at all.....

    This price sounds just too good to be true. Run, don't walk, away from this!

    I thinkg that's a good deal - unless you're into heavy duty computing like editing vids, using music software or heavy photoshopping.

    unlikely to be someone who is unloading it that cheap unless there's a bad reason...not new, stolen, who knows. I wouldn't do it.

    QFE. Ask a lot of questions. I had a similar product on my local craigslist ... Googled the guy's number, and he was repeatedly excused of selling stolen products. I reported it to the police.
