    I really wouldn't buy a Mac from eBay unless I knew next to everything there was to know about the specific Mac.

    I just would'nt trust the condition regardless of what the seller describes. I know there are good buys out there but it's just my opinion.

    True, I understand. Ebay has been going down hill, I didnt have problems with it for 2 or 3 years and this past year Ive been dealing with a lot of stupid crap and scammers.

    I agree. I would only go to eBay for a Mac that is two years old or more. You should be extremely suspicious of anyone selling a newer model Mac on eBay as the vast majority of those are scams.
    Sure, there are some legit ones but they are too few and far between.

    If you are looking for a newer Mac and want to save some money, then I would suggest looking at the refurbed section on Apple's site.
