    make sure there was no liquid damage; otherwise, the warranty will be voided.

    My only way of testing for that type of damage is by testing the keyboard keys and backlighting.

    Try to ask for serial number and check it out at apple store to verify that warranty is valid and item has not been stolen...

    I already checked it and it's valid. How to know if it's a stolen one?

    That is an awsome deal!! , I paid for mine (Sept 2012 built, 2.7/16/768) $2399 on Ebay few months ago, only difference is mine came with the 3 yr Applecare, which you can get for $250 from B&H

    Since you already bought it, what was the item number to see how it looks?

    Wow! It's awesome! I wish my laptop could come with apple care!
    Do you mean the list number on ebay?

    Btw, it comes without original box and accessories. Do you think i should be worried about it?
    Is it gonna be a problem when i deal with warranty or fix things with apple in the future?

    The seller is great! I mean we communicated for about an hour last night before i paid the item (questions and answers type of conversation).

    Yes I meant listing number. Not having box or accesories does not will cause you issues with the warranty, warranty is transferrable from owner to owner without the need to do anything in your end.

    I don't want to worry you, but I think most of Mac buyers keep the small and nicely designed box. Keeping the box gives it a kinda of added value showing that the original buyer took care of it. With the serial number you could verify at any Apple store the identity of the original buyer...
    Good luck.

    I actually did exactly that since mine came without its box. :)

    I tried the Ebay Auction list number (18117637458) but could not locate it to see it.

    How much you paid for the original box? Where did you get it?
    I looked on ebay. The cheapest i can find is $20!!

    OH! I forgot one number on the list. Try this again.
    181176377458

    The pictures does not show a lot of detail, but looks nice. I imagine you know the warranty date based on info the seller provided you separately since the serial number is not listed on the auction information or visible on the pictures. On the case, I think I paid $20 for mine too.

    Yes! The seller gave me the serial number already. The limited warranty is until Feb 22 next year.

    Do you think I need a box? Idnk if I need it or not.
    I found one on ebay for $19... But I feel like it's still expensive! :(
    I need to save money for AppleCare, Ethernet adapter, and case.

    Having the original box helps if you plan to resell it. Otherwise, it's not much use except if you need to ship your computer somewhere.
