    I am currently bidding on a MBA on eBay at $1600 and shipping is $40. I can get it from the Apple Store with discount for $1700. I'm not really in the market for it but it seems like a good deal. Am I making a mistake, as I am really in the market for a MacBook with 2GB ram and this just seems better?

    It seems like you're asking two questions here:

    1.) Should I bid on this eBay MBA or buy one from Apple?

    2.) Should I get an MBA at all, or an MB?

    Thus, I shall provide two answers:

    1.) Stay away from eBay (unless you think the reward of saving $60 is worth the risk of losing $1600).

    2.) Decide which kind of computer you want before dropping anything close to $1600 in cash.

    That is great advice. I got sniped at the last few seconds on eBay. If I won it, I was gonna flip it back on eBay. Thank you though.

    I would probably never buy a new mac on ebay only it was an older model that is under $500. All you hear of nowadays are people getting no laptop or phone books instead of PS3s.
