    I suspect they may be grey imports, we see a lot here in UAE and often the approved dealers are very unhelpful if you have problems, especially with Iphones.

    In the UK you should fare better with consumer law etc and MAC's have full international support, unlike Iphones that have a get out clause "Return to country of purchase" which is not often invoked, but is possible. See if the ebay seller is an authorised Apple retailer.

    With AppleCare you should be 100% covered for your rMB. Also check out that the standard 30 days return for mail order is applicable and of course use a credit card to protect yourself further under sale of goods acts as applicable for your country.

    I bought mine on eBay.ca (Canadian site) and paid a fraction of the normal price here . It was an open box with 2 cycles on the battery and a 3 year transferable Apple Care Warranty. The seller was in the U.S. When I transferred the warranty even the Apple Rep said I got a heck of a deal for the price I paid. I have bought several systems off eBay and never had a problem although I'm selective of the seller feedback and usually watch what they are selling for a little while so I know when a decent price comes up.
