    hi all,

    I'm buying a macbook pro 15" 2.2 tomorrow. I'm buying it from a guy( i never met him) price is ok..
    he said that he bought it from US 2 months ago and never opened it..i saw the pictures tho..looks brand new or is it..can you check the box for me..sealing etc.. http://www.sahibinden.com/acil_0_ga...WQQaXQQ4829203WQQpXQQdisplayitem?keyword=acil

    He says it comes with Tiger( there was no leopard when he bought it )
    And i asked him if its glossy or matte, he said " i think it's glossy " :p how can i be sure without opening the box..When did they release glossy ones ?
    i need some tips..
    thank you

    The tip is don't hand over your money till you've tested the product but that all looks dodgy to me.

    Leopard was released in October 07 so why would it have Tiger if it's only 2 months old.

    I would open it and check the serial number on apple.com before you give him any money....if it's older than he says (meaning it has less warranty) offer him a lower price.
