    I think I founf a pretty good deal.

    It's for a Macbook Air (I hope you're not surprised!), the 80gig HDD version.

    It comes with apple care, and some backpack. It is brand new, box is still sealed.

    So 1800$ seems very good to me, what do you guys think?

    I can get MBAs through my work discount for $1545, so I probably wouldn't classify it as a super deal. You also need to consider if there's some reason the guy is selling it (overheating?) and if you'd be disappointed if they announce MBA updates in October.

    After talking to the guy who's selling it and seeing the MBA (actually just the box because it's still sealed) it is not an 1.6 80gb HDD, it's the SSD version! It was some kind of gift for his wife but he got caught in a little thing called DIVORCE and he just wanted to get rid of it. I gave him 1300$CAN for it and I'm typing this on my brand new MBA!!!
