Seems like the going price is around $600 Canadian in my market on Craigslist. Is this too risky? The other options are: - $1139 + tax refurbished from Apple. - $1229 + tax new from Apple. - $600 all-in used from Craigslist. - $899 + tax used from a local electronics store. The idea of paying $1500 for a 2012 computer fills me with rage, but so does the idea of buying a lemon from craigslist that dies after 3 months of use.
