    This guy is selling his 13" MBP core i5 2.3Ghz for $700. There is a small dent in the corner of the screen and some wear on it. Is this worth it?

    as always with a used mac... u want to take some precautions.

    check for water damages?

    has he upgraded the RAM and HD?

    warranty still exists? (check the serial # on apple's website)

    why is he selling it? do you know him personally? does he have receipt?

    Heck to the no. Damage? Apple can refuse warranty service on it if they think you caused it based on the damage.

    If the dent resembles damage from a drop (usually the case), warranty is probably gone.

    Minor scratches/scuffs are okay though.

    If the dent is on the screen and the screen is not shattered I see no reason why they would deny warrenty. People have dents on there mbp all the time and get them serviced.

    I mean if its obvious they should deny the warrenty but one small dent and you should be fine.
