    Wow, people are obviously not reading the post closely enough. That is sad.

    Clearly a scam via a hijacked account. I reported it to ebay as:

    eBay is full of these scams for all kinds of electronic devices. If you google a bit you'll find a bunch of stories about them. They rely on people not reading the information that closely and assuming it is what it "appears" to be.

    Once the winner pays, they get sent a link to the Apple Online Store.

    To be fair the item is a guide on how to buy a MBPr. Which clearly if they bid is much for this entry they clearly need it.

    Seems worth $2600 to me, no missing or damaged pages!

    "Brand New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. See the seller’s listing for full details."

    Anyone here from Germany? The seller of that "guide" is there. I wondered if there is something specific to that country that might make selling a "guide" cheaper (taxes, fees, etc) then selling a "computer." And it's well known trick on eBay there so the buyers also know that a computer is really being sold.

    That's the only non-scam idea I've come up with.
