    Very good deal! :).

    It would be a fantastic deal if the remaining AppleCare is included in the price :D

    Sounds like early 2011 (given the 2GHz i7). That's not bad given the big SSD and 16GB config. Not a total steal, but not bad.

    Glossy or anti-glare?

    Does it include Applecare?

    being that they still bring about 2K on ebay without the 500GB SSD, it'd be a steal..

    This is a steal:
    http://raleigh.craigslist.org/sys/3827136340.html

    But that's so cheap it's suspect. Still, you get better deals on CL than over eBay, and it's easier not to get scammed.

    Given that I bought my early 2011 uMBP-15 w/ 8GB & a new licensed copy of Win7 for $900 a year ago, and figuring a small premium for the uMBP17 - I'd say $1300 is pretty decently cheap, and $1000-$1100 is a bit of a steal. Those paying $2k are suckers.

    if this had antiglare and a couple of acces. id buy it asap.

    wouldnt the SSD be relatively cheap on special deals, same with RAM?

    Is that even possibly not a scam?

    I just bought a late 2011 MBP 17 with Applecare until Feb. 2015 for $700 on craigslist. It does however have a minor cracked glass. Everything works great and the LCD is not damaged, just the glass. I know a guy that can replace the glass for $100. I think I got a good deal.

    Going purely by the scuff/dent on the one corner, it's probably not a scam.

    If you don't mind that scuff though, that seems like a hell of a deal, doesn't it?

    Maybe. I'd have to check it out in person to be sure, but it probably is.
