    Listing has ended. They sold 602 of them.

    602 x $885 = $532,770

    Say they have 10% profit.

    $53K in few hours :)

    You forgot to subtract out the eBay listing fees. So they ended up losing money. ;)

    I added all their cost and said 10%. If you think they lost money, I think it is funny :)

    I doubt they made 10%. This was probably a break-even at best. Apple isn't known for giving dealers large profit margins, this was probably close to break-even BEFORE adding in shipping and eBay fees. At $885, it was already 11.5% off, so even if they had a 15% profit margin at Apple's price, that's down to $35 at this price. eBay listing fees and shipping, and you're down to nearly nothing.
