    That looks kinda fishy to me. Could be possible, but I doubt it. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

    I agree. Dont buy it. The blurry picture and all that, somebody is going to rob you.

    Check out this for info on buying on Craigslist. For some reason, $640 seems to be a common price used by scammers on Craigslist.

    yeah i figured it was too good to be true. I'll avoid getting mugged and/or buying a mbp which has something significantly wrong with it.

    Thanks guys

    at least on ebay you can see seller feedback and comments that give you an idea if the person is honest and not just a scammer

    I guess you'll notice that the ad has been removed now.

    I saw an ad like that for a "Brand NEW MBP" ... that was a 2.16GHz. Sound fishy?
