    They seem to be a large high volume seller on ebay selling mostly refurbished pre-retina MBPs. Their description says, "Manufacturer refurbished. Comes tested by Apple Mac Technicians and backed by a 1-year warranty!”

    I was under the impression that the only way to get a manufacturer refurbished MBP was from the online Apple Store. They're saying the battery and screen are in perfect condition and all the buyer would have to put up with is a few minor nicks and scratches. They have a 100 percent feedback rating out of a total of 4,286 sales. How can over four thousand buyers of used Mac computers be that happy? Some of their MBPs are only $699 with free shipping. Makes me wonder if I could tolerate a full glossy pre-retina display.

    For $700 why buy a 7 year old computer? If I were you and budget is a concern I would really just save up.

    $1K for a 2010 MBP is a massive ripoff to say the least.

    Ok I get it. Nobody from the MacRumors community buys a computer from ebay. :)

    Uhhh I wasn't saying that. You can still find great deals on eBay, it's just that you have to be careful.

    That doesn't look like a very good deal to me.
    If you're going to buy a "refurbished" Mac, buy one that is APPLE-refurbished.

    'Nuff said 'bout that!

    I wouldn't pay over $400 for a loaded 2010
    I wouldn't pay any more for a 2011 - it's a ticking time bomb with that video card
