Hi there.

Sounds good. Suspiciously good. If it's on Ebay or something, beware.

Yeah, the upside is the matte screen for me.
The downside is that its on ebay.
Run away, far away from buying "new" things on ebay. You might be okay for a deal here and there, but the majority of those auctions are scams or utter crap.

Ive had pretty good experience with eBay. Plus it is covered under PayPal protection, which is always a good thing. And seller agrees to pay shipping cost and refund money if it is defective. What do you guys think, take it?

I have read bad stories about PayPal also.

Yea, i understand why a lot of people are concerned about it. I have also been conned through PayPal, but they have protection from fraud. I got all my money back. =)
