    Lots of people have bought machines off eBay with success - just do a search.

    I don't mind eBay for many things, but for laptops I just can't bring myself to do the eBay route with all the obvious pitfalls. I'd rather wait for a model to appear in the refurb store - at least you know you won't get a box full of rocks :rolleyes:

    Sometimes you even get a new computer with the refurb store anyway.

    Ebay is great for Applecare, just buy from a respectable well feedbacked seller, but buying a whole laptop, be careful.
