    I am considering buying a macbook pro from a third party (craigslist) because they're so expensive! I am thinking of getting the higher end model of either the 13 or 15 inch 2011 macbook pro. The seller said that they are brand new and sealed in a box and I already checked the serials on his box (pictures he sent me) and they have warranty until June 17, 2012. I am leaning towards buying one from him but how do I know I'm not being scammed? What should I check for when I go buy it from him? In the pictures he sent me, the seal he spoke of was just a seal like this.

    Do you guys think it's legit? He's selling them for around $200 less than the price I would get it for in an Apple store. And what things should I check for if I decide to go buy it? Thanks!
