    I suggest trying the Mac Refurbished section. Buying used hardware not always is a wise choice. Refurbs at least have some warranty plus its like buying new but better pricing.

    The other place is to get your post count up and by from the classifieds here. Members must have 225 posts and be around for 6 months - a little bit more reassuring that faceless ebay/craigslist users.

    I agree. Apple Refurbs are like new and have a 1 year warranty and are eligible for AppleCare.

    Refurbished from Apple.com or a reputable seller here/ebay that possibly has applecare. This would be my approach.

    Used or refurb, if it comes with AppleCare and the seller states how much time is left on the warranty, you might get a good deal.

    Refurbs cost more than used, but offer a full 3 years if you get AppleCare (1 year). Used models come with whatever warranty still remains...

    Either way you can get a good deal...
