    Hello everybody, haven't posted in a long time!!! I just have a question about buying a macbook pro from this website (buyinginstore.com) It seems kind of shady to be buying from this store especially since a brand new (older non-unibody) macbook pro for only $419.00. Has anyone bought anything from this website? Thanks all for your help in advance!!!

    p.s. Here is the direct link to the macbook pro. http://www.buyinginstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=748

    If you have to ask...

    Doesn't it seem strange that this pissy little site can sell MBs for so much less than anyone else?

    There's only e-mail address, no other information so..

    If it's too good to be true, it usually isn't true

    You can't click on the verisign button up top so I'd say there's a huge problem with the site.

    If you're looking for a plastic mb, I'd say ebay is the best place to look.

    If possible, get the white plastic refurb from apple for $749. Comes with warranty and is essentially brand new, not to mention current.

    Almost every single laptop they seem to have *exactly* a quantity of 100 available... And it sure doesn't say so, but obviously many of these machines are used.

    The laptop that you linked to... I don't believe it's a new unibody model. Not only does it not say that it's a unibody, it also has the *exact* same specs as my MPB - purchased in November 2007.

    There are no FAQ's on the site and as others have pointed out - only email to get in contact them. Sounds shady, all the around

    Lol, it let me add 10,000 of the MBP's to my cart, even though they supposedly only have 100. No way this is legit... but we all already knew that. :D I second the advice for the refurb white Macbook.
