There are significant risks to eBay. Macs and Mac notebooks are scam magnets because they are so desirable. 100% feedback is no assurance that the account is not hijacked, or hasn't been built up to 100% with shills.

Any significant discounts on new or near new Macs are almost always scams.

If you have to ask here, then you are probably not ready.

I would advise a new purchaser to look at the Apple refurb store first.

Use your intuition, if something looks too good to be true, it probably is. Just relying on 99 - 100% feedback isn't full proof. Read the feedback, see what the items were, were they all 99¢ and your now contemplating buying a several hundred dollar item.. etc..
