    A lot of people are selling un opened "new", not refurb, or gray, macbooks on craigslist, ebay, etc. Full Apple warranty, etc. The prices are quite a bit lower than Apple store.
    One guy in Dania FL. links to his ebay store and has 100% positive reviews.

    How do these people get these machines? Want to buy a macbook and don't mind saving $.

    thanks for any insight.

    It's probably a scam, I'd avoid them if I were you.

    Sounds too good to be true.....

    Exercise caution.

    I know - on Craigslist at least - that scammers use a very standard posting that you get very used to seeing. If not that, then you'll know as soon as the person says they're not in the country.

    Usually, if it's too good to be true, it's a scam.

    I seriously doubt Apple will sell, even in quantity, to someone at price that could undercut Apples' price on refurbs. :eek:

    A scam is far more likely. ;)
