    This is a deal:

    used Macbook pro 15" anti-glare Mid 2012 version
    2.5, i7, 16GB, 1TB storage
    condition: like new
    come with AppleCare (until June 2015)
    80 battery cycles
    Microsoft office 2011
    iWork

    for $1700

    Should I get it?

    If not, what spec I could get for $1700 with 15" antiglare?

    The seller keeps pushing me to purchase today for this laptop. So I need to make my decision soon!

    It's a good deal but why is the seller rushing you to buy now? That's a red flag.

    Stolen laptop. If it's such a good deal, why is he pressuring YOU to buy it. Surely he should have a line of buyers...

    Yeah! I know.. that's why I made him wait for 1-2 days.
    He kept telling me that this model will be gone soon and he won't guarantee if it will be sell in the next 1-2 days.

    Before, he offered me late 2011 version for $1700.
    When I told him that I will get back maybe Friday, he changed his mind and offered me 2012 version for $1700 and buy it tonight.

    if ur gonna spend 1700 on a macbook, u my as well buy new. get it with a student discount, with taxes prob 1800 and some odd dollars.

    less hassle and this seller sounds, suspicious

    Pass, this is beyond sketchy.

    He was offering a 2011 for 1700 now magically a 2012?

    Run

    Tell the seller that you found other offer for less than 1700 and see if he can sell for lower then buy it right now. :apple:

    If using the student account.
    I might get a new 8GB 500GB, 2.3, and antiglare for almost $1900 (including tax).

    He's the ebay seller with 100% positive feedback.
    I have sold many macbook pro though. So I'm not sure why he kept pushing me.

    I feel like $1700 is a damn good deal for cMBP 15" 2012 antiglare with 3 years AppleCare + 1 year squaretrade.

    But the pushy thing is scared me!

    ----------

    I told him. He said it's the best deal and I won't get this price with this specs anywhere.

    You can get a refurbed from Apple for cheaper than that.

    For 1700 you can get this refurb, you get a warrantied computer, I'd say this is a better deal imo

    $1699 + tax = more than $1800
    only get 4GB and 750GB though

    For this seller, $1700 = I got 16GB Ram, 1TB

    I still try to decide.. I told the seller that i'm going to give him answer today or tomorrow.

    I found some deals for macbook pro retina on ebay.. I still need to shop around & compare
