    If it's for real, which it seems to be if it's a local drop-off, then yes since it retails for about $1,700.

    You may want to confirm (1) it works, and (2) it's not stolen. I believe you can call Apple with the serial number, but I'm not certain.

    He said box has never been open... I told him if I make the drive out there I will want to open the seal and make sure it is what he says it is.

    If it is what he says it is, then i think it is a great deal...

    Lets hope for the best.. leaving now :)

    bring a friend and don't bring any cash.
    if you like it, tell him you'll go the bank, then come back.

    sounds good though.
