    It sure sounds like a scam... If you can meet up with them in person check it out. If it has anything to do with shipping... tell them to screw off :cool:

    A brand new MBP that comes cheaper than a mid-line MacBook. Scam. Give it a pass, and keep your money.

    If you're in the market for a MacBook Pro but don't have the funds yet, keep saving, and keep an eye on the refurbished products in the Apple online store.

    Plzzzzz i Paid nearly 2.3k for a machine with those specs (educational discount :p) and they want to let it go for 1.2k?

    Then again, it may be for quick, like very quick sale, so if they wanna meet locally, its worth the shot.

    100% guaranteed genuine scam. Come on now.

    I can't believe they're stupid enough to advertise it for $1200.. but then again, there's always people who'll go for it, so I guess it's not so very stupid...

    Anyway, there's a chance it's not a scam, and if it's not, it means that it's stolen.

    Yeah, it takes them a couple of days to respond.

    Next, they'll say that they're out of the country at the moment and would love to go through with this transaction. Blah blah blah... ship it... blah blah blah... leave money with third-party that they know of and are well respected.

    It may have been boosted, and they want to get rid of it quick.
