Back story: My entire family is comprised of Mac evangelists, but the people we deal with are less than accepting at times. Case in point, my mom's school corporation forces her to have a pathetic Gateway laptop from 1997 because she teaches special education students. This comes from the flawed logic (read: outright lie) that a certain accredited program for special ed classes only works on Windows (my mom is allowed to use her five G3 iMacs and four Core 2 iMacs as student computers, though... Idiots.) when in actuality it is a web-based program. For the past five years, she's been stuck with this pathetic excuse for a computer that she leaves on her desk every night next to a sticky note that says "Steal me." (a nod to the fact that her old computer, a 17" G4 laptop, was stolen by a substitute custodian. She's had enough of not having a computer she can use anywhere in the house, and I'm tired of her using my laptop all the time. Version for those who hate reading: My mom wants a MacBook Pro. I've found some on a site called Vflyer, which I assume is like Craigslist. However, I have no experience with either and I am wondering whether or not buying from a seller there is safe and scam-resistant or not. I know the tips: never use cash, see the device in action and person if possible, etc. I would just like some info on past experiences with this site and sites like it. Thanks.
