What's the general consensus regarding buying brand new (in original packaging) macs off of ebay from non-Authorized Apple Dealers? It makes me wary, but I may be being overly cautious. I came across this, which looks pretty good: http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Apple-iMac-...yZ111418QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem His feedback is almost entirely from selling macs and it's all positive (and, in my opinion, too extensive for it to be shill feedback). I sent him a message, asking if he was authorized, and how the warranty worked (since it starts at the point of purchase -- his point of purchase) and not when I open the box. I received this response: "Hi, no I am not an Apple dealer and I buy the systems for resale from a major Apple reseller. I have sold hundreds of systems and have never encountered warranty issues. See my feedback. I have even had one MacBook arrive to the buyer dead and the buyer took it to his local Apple Store and they took care of it with no problems. (He did not want to wait for me to send him another). I buy the systems the week I list them and the warranty normally has 1 year and a week when I get them. Some have even had longer." The bit about the warranty being a year and a week seems like bs to me, personally. In fact the whole message seems a little contrived...not sure. I don't know how he goes about getting these computers and how he can sell them for $75 below apple prices (and that doesn't factor in the auction fees or paypal fees he's incurring). But the feedback's all good...What do you guys think? I'm going to send him a message requesting the serial number (this is listed on the outside of the box, right?) so I can confirm the warranty info on apple's website.
