You may think what you want but that is not where I would shop for such. The savings versus risk doesn't work for m.
Did you try amazon?
I am looking to replace my dead 14" G4 with either a Macbook or the Macbook Pro. I was going to go for the 13-inch Macbook but I think the small screen size will be a shocker for me. A little shopping on Apple.com revealed a $700+ price difference just to go up to the 15".
I just hit up ebay to check out some prices and if I had the courage to go that route I could get a "new in box" or "Like new" 15" Macbook pro for around the same price as I could get the $899 white 13.3-inch Macbook. I have to say I am tempted...is my ebay idea a BAD one??
