    Not a scam at all. I've purchased several Mac Pros from them. Most were in excellent condition. I've had less luck with laptops. A couple purchases turned me off from buying used laptops at all.

    The two machines you linked to are old and cheap. I wouldn't expect them to be in very good condition.

    I would call and talk to them if you are serious about any particular machine. You will get better info that way.

    Pretty sure its not a scam -but as Thats All said - those are really old machines. Spending 200-300 on nearly decade-old (well, 7-8 year old) machines makes no sense, just get a cheap new windows laptop for not much more. It'll be a heck of a lot more reliable.

    I've sold multiple Mac computers to Mac of All Trades. No problem. They've been around for a while.

    Ordered a MacBook Pro 13” Mid-2012 from Macofalltrades on 05/27/18. 1) Unit ARRIVED on 06/01/18 with a defective LCD screen. Bright white spot in the center from the moment I powered it on. 2) The next day, before they even responded to my support ticket, the hard drive crashed.

    If you do not buy the extended warranty, they will send you a broken laptop and charge you to send it back!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    STAY AWAY!!!!

    ... luckily I paid with PayPal. Because I didn’t trust these scammers from the start. Forced to open a dispute.
