    Would anyone recommend buying a mac Pro on ebay or Craigslist? Ebay has buyer protection, so it might be worth it.

    Thoughts, experiences?

    I suggest you get it from apple.com. You don't want to buy from Ebay because there have been reports that people would sending the product to their location and make eBay people think they already sent their products to you. Go to craigslist...you might end up with broken stuff...or thugs waiting to rob you and beat you down like bean bag.

    Craigslist can be the best.

    If you do your due diligence on eBay you can be fine. I sold my modified 5,1 on eBay (a decision I have regretted sometimes as I miss it) and as a Seller, the transaction was flawless.

    If buying vie eBay I would strongly advise looking for sales where the original Apple box is offered as it protects the lower feet from damage in shipping.

    For Craigslist/Gumtree, just bring a couple of friends with you on the pretense that the MP is heavy and they are there to help lug it around.

    Yeah craigslist is generally very safe. I've never run into issues with it and people have always been nice and friendly. Just make sure you agree on price beforehand.
