    I've never ordered a brand new computer from eBay before.

    The seller looks completely legit. He sells tons of mac products.

    I purchased a brand new 27 inch core i7 with 8gB DDR3 ram 3 year AppleCare for $2450 plus $200 bing cash back. It's sealed and new.

    The seller lists his home address as Conn.

    But today I got the fedex shipping confirmation and the item is shipping from Bloomington California and will arrive in Tuesday Feb 9.

    So is this an Apple official shipping pickup location? Or is the seller his own distrubuion network. He's a power eBay seller with more than 10000 items sold and 99.6% positive feedback so I am not worried about it being a scam.

    Just wondering those who ordered through official apple.com. Where did ur iMac ship from?

    I wonder where my ebay seller got his core i7's if the CTO are directly from China. He had 10 of them for sale with 8GB DDR3 RAM and 3 year warranty.

    I know he must get at least a 15% discount from Apple in order to resale them at those prices.

    He lives on the east coast but he's shipping from California. It took him 5 days to ship my order. Could it have taken 4-5 days to Ship from China to California and than it's on the Fedex truck? Where do these ebay guys get these? Just asking because these are supposed to be brand new, sealed.
