    Very good if it's true. That's '09 model so IMO that sounds pretty fishy

    i'm going to give the man a ring :) - when i get home.
    If he sounds legit, i'll go over and check it out. (and check whether he looks like he would have nicked it!) :)

    actually that looks more like a mac book pro or the new white macbook, not the black and silver one ?

    That's white MacBook, current gen. 816£ as new, 694£ from refurb store so that's very good deal. Still inside warranty

    That's not the current gen MacBook. That's a previous gen MacBook. Look at the ridges on the top of the display (that meet the bottom case), as well as the curve of the bottom case.

    That means this is probably a scam. If the pic doesn't match the specs, I wouldn't go for it.

    Specs says it is but you're right, the pic doesn't. Look at the trackpad, it's the old non-multitouch one, the new one has same as MBPs, the nice big one

    I already said it sounds fishy but worth calling though
