    Definitely keep looking. The way I search eBay is go to newly listed buy it now auctions that have a best offer option. This means someone just listed it and may be eager to sell the item. Just a couple weeks ago, I scored a 2012 with the 256gb ssd 8gb of ram. 9 cycles on the battery, 3 years of apple care (good till February 2016) for 700 plus 30 shipping. The refurb model you are talking about in your op is 850 refurbished on apple.com

    Red light here. You aren't buying any Apple-branded peace of mind here.
