    Sure it looks like a good deal. But there is no name or phone so it probably just will lead to a scammer.

    Pay cash only, meet in a public place with wifi like starbucks or a library, check thoroughly.

    I'll wager you get a response e-mail leading to a website. Or someone saying they will ship it if you just pay through escrow site or western union.

    You did see it was a CoreDuo machine, so it's the 1st generation MacBook Pro, nowhere near new?

    The listing is well written, doesn't scream 'scam'.

    Possibility there is some fatal flaw with the machine, but with Applecare...
    If they have registered their Applecare, they should be able to show you the serial number on the Applecare site verifying the warranty.

    If it is real though, it will have been sold in the first 5 minutes.
