    I found a new 2.0 Ghz Macbook Pro 15 inch with a HRAG screen with Windows 7 in bootcamp and Xp in a virtual machine.
    Also it has final cut pro x, aperture 3, lightroom 3, iwork, iLife and MS office 11 installed with it.
    It is used and $1800
    Is that a good deal?

    If you get the licenses to these applications and OSs, then yeah, this is a good deal.
    But as you probably won't get the licenses, you are not legally allowed to use those applications, even if preinstalled on a used system.

    People sell computers with software pre installed all the time. Nothing is going to happen to you even if its illegal.

    The software could be pirated though which adds no value to your purchase.

    Let me guess...

    On CL and the seller (she) must sell now?! Something about needing the money to make payments for other debts?

    This is the main point. Don't let all these programs factor into your price if they are pirated. Use them if you want, but don't pay for them.

    Also, if it's on Craigslist and the price is very good, it's stolen (or paid for with a stolen card).
