If you got it for $1,000, and you've looked it over, and it's in fine shape/good condition, why is there even a question?wallock said:Hey everybody - I just bought a Macbook from a guy on another forum. I paid $1000 for it. It is a White 2GHz with 60GB, Superdrive, 2GB RAM. I was worried it was a scam, but it actually arrived! He used a pad to prevent staining on the palm rest so it looks great. Does this seem too good to be true? I feel like I got a really good deal...
Well it would help if the link was working but it is probably a pyramid scheme and as you are banned, i think that i will definately not listen to you.bobbyy9 said:
But you should compare the price to the refurb price, not to the full retail price. A refurb 2.0 GHz White MacBook is $1099 w/o the memory upgrade. So with Memory upgrade, minus depreciation, let's call it $1250 or $1300. So yes, the MacBook was a great deal, but not as great as you imply.Even with the student discount, the same thing from the online Apple Store is $1,649.00. RAM is expensive through them though, so it would be a little cheaper if you got your RAM somewhere else, but even then it wouldn't come close to being around $1,000.
If you buy a mac from a third party source, can you still get apple care???Whoever bought it from you could've bought it from *Apple*, with the full warranties that that implies, for far less than they paid you. With skillz like that you should make sure to put them to good use to get rich
No need for any receipt. Apple will go off your serial number as to whether it's still covered or not. If it is, then Applecare can be applied.What if you don't have the original receipt? Say you have your eBay receipt, would that be enough along with a serial number?
