    I'm looking for the best place to buy a used Mac Pro.

    The place I ordered one from on Monday really sucks, they keep making excuses. So I canceled the order.

    I'm looking for the best place to buy one from. Was looking at like a 2.66 Ghz rev. 1,1.

    Most of the places I find these at just don't look that great. So if anyone has ever ordered one from a site and had a good experience please let me know.

    Thanks

    where did you place that first order at? Just to let others know NOT to buy from them?

    Apple refurb store is the ONLY place I go for used Macs

    Probably best if you give us an idea as to where you are. No point in recommending somewhere in Europe if you're in the US, for example

    Didn't notice all the bad reviews till after I places my order.

    I was told it would ship monday when I ordered, nothing. Was told tuesday it didn't ship because they were brining up a fresh pallet from another wear house and it would shop tuesday, nothing shipped again, called this morning and was told it may ship today.

    Canceled the order after that.

    I normally would by from the refurb store, but they don't have any mac pros with in my budget.

    Craigslist have the best prices. eBay a bigger selection.

    I would second eBay. As there are plenty of sellers there with good reputation. You will also most likely beat any used mac store prices. As they are usually ridiculously high.

    These guys are maybe not the cheapest, but they are nice.

    Looks like an OK selection

    edit to add: OK maybe I'm an E-bay basher but I prefer dealing with a company that actually answers phone calls and am happy to pay a slight premium for the privilege.

    I'm a big fan of the refurb store as well, but you're not going to find a 1,1 up there. Check out PowerMax.com. Also eBay is chock full of 1,1's ATM, and when there's lots of inventory floating around prices go down. You can probably find a good one out there for cheap.

    I bought a 2.66Ghz Mac Pro off ebay and had no problems. Got a good price too. I bought it from a company that resells leased units. The company had a couple thousand feedback so it was reputable.

    used 1,1 Mac Pro...

    I actually have one I'm selling, having upgraded to a newer machine. I tried to send you a PM, but it didn't go through. It's in great shape, and I have 100% feedback on ebay, if you want to go through them. If you're interested, you can message me through my profile here.

    I got a great deal on my 2008 Mac Pro on eBay.

    Bought from a seller who wasn't too far away to visit and strangle if anything went wrong. :)

    Nothing went wrong, very happy with machine.
