It's NJ, do you need to ask?



OK, seriously, I think it looks a little suspicious, but when you have boxes and accesories, it doesn't look like it was stolen from a car or anything, does it?

It just seems very cheap to me, especially for 1064ghz (must be cooled by liquid hydrogen or something). Heh. Anyway, you might find the battery holds no charge, they have OS X 10.2 or something and maybe they don't look that great close up.

It does not seem all that cheap to me. The webcam is probably a 20$ model and the USB stick you can get for 10$. Most iBooks I have seen that have been upgraded go for about 400$ and these are the base models.

Additionally the final sentence of: "We Also Buy Gold and Used, Broken Laptops!" I am betting these laptops have been put together from pieces.
