    The guy looks legit. If you have a good credit card that protects you on those types of purchases I would say go for it. If it helps, I would personally do it.
    What ever you decide, keep us updated

    there's something wrong with it, either it's the old macbook, even if new, or he's a scammer.
    It says combo drive in the description, as well as ddr2, and the new 2.0 has ddr3 of course and superdrive, even the 2.1 plastic one does.

    Dude, i hope its not a scam!!!

    I had a horrible ordeal trying to get resolved from a Motorola Razr phone that was JUNK when it arrived (aside from the amount of junk that i expected out of motorola! JJK, the Razr was decent).

    Anyway, this "seller" scammed me (and like seriously over 100 others after my sale) and I never got a refund or anything.

    AND to make matters worse... there are no real PEOPLE to talk to at Ebay and their help "chat service" is an automated (and cyclical--very frustrating) joke too.

    I'm praying for you (and your paypal account!)

    usps tracking is useless. it states its delivered or not delivered. there is no actual tracking and you dont get to sign fr the product saying it was recieved. scammers like to send things like photos or tape / cd cases. then say look it was delivered.

    signature on deliver is a little better. at least if it feels way to light you can refuse to sign for it.

    i hate to say it but that usps is a really bad sign.

    Smells like a scam .. That tracking number means nothing , just states that they logged in to the USPS site and created a shipping label.

    That is just so you send the cash and make you think they are legit .

    I hope its legit and you get a good deal , but sure seems borderline scam .

    Yeah sadly this does seem to be scam. Oh well, we'll see in a few days when you actually get a cheap Dell or something.

    USPS doesn't have tracking. It's only delivery confirmation.


    Just looked at his feedback and noticed he's been selling cheap Chinese knockoff iPhones. WTF :confused:

    Probably be cheap knockoff Macbooks too....
