    Does it matter even if its never been registered? Or do you need a receipt to even register it?

    If he doesn't have one it means its probably stolen. If he has one, go ahead and buy.

    Look it over and make sure it works, and on the bottom center of the back of the device make sure it does not say "Demo Unit-Not for Resale." The only way to obtain one of those is to steal one. And as always: no purchase.

    Great price... you have to ask, why would someone buy one and then sell it at a great price? If it sounds too good to be true... beware.

    Buy it as long as it is within a reasonable price range.
    I bought a 16gb wifi used. Guy wanted 500. I bought for 450.
    No receipt.
    Guy just lost his job was moving etc.
    I could have bought new for 540 which includes tax from apple but I got for 450 I did good!!!!!!

    I bought a 64gb WiFi model for $625 saving me about $150, the people decided they wanted a 3G model and I got a great deal. Love it!

    I bought a used WiFi 64g model for $575 with Applecare. There are people out there who just don't want one after the novelty wore off (for them).

    He had a receipt but I didn't ask for was just stuffed into the box along with a case and the rest of the accessories.
