    Looks dodgy.
    Just ask if you can pick up in person and pay cash.
    If not forget it.
    Let me know what reply you get - I only live 10 miles from luton :)

    How hard is "if it is too good to be true" to really understand in life?

    It looks like it's a scam.

    21.5-inch: 3.1GHz

    3.1GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
    2560 x 1440 resolution
    4GB (two 2GB) memory
    1TB hard drive1
    AMD Radeon HD 6970M with 1GB

    These specs don't exist! Those are specs of a 27 inch. You would think an "apple engineer would know the specs of an Apple computer.

    The listing also says Apple gave him 14 iMacs, 1 for each year he worked there. Now do you really believe that?

    Ooooh ooohhhh this is another 'sign'! The new iMac is really around the corner! They're getting rid of the 'old' iMacs by giving them away to their staffs! :eek::D

    To be honest, if I had seen this earlier, I'd have taken the risk on it. Nowadays with PayPal, if the item ain't right, you're guaranteed to get your money back one way or another lol
