  • I'd be afraid it was a scam. There are a lot of them on Craigslist. I'd rather go through eBay (if you're looking for a deal) or go to an electronics store (your best bet for quality).

  • As with buying anything second hand there is always a risk. Craigslist can be just a good of a place to find one as anywhere else, you just have to use your common sense and don't fall for anything stupid. Oh, and always meet in a public place, but again, thats just common sense.
    P.S. whenever buying something that plugs in, make sure you plug it in to make sure it works before buying it.

  • I dont see a problem with it. It will be older and a little slower then what is out now but when you talk to the person you are buying it from just ask if they have ANY problems with it such as a curent virus or a disk drive that is not working. This way you dont spend the money to get it to find out that it dosnt work properly.

  • i dont thinkk you should buy it off the internet, because they might have some stuff wrong with it,or it dont work. i say just go get one from rent a center. its all new and you dont have to pay full right away. they let you pay in payments

  • I wouldn't buy that off of CL - you'd want at least a year warranty backing from a major retailer.

  • My husband bought my Mac Mini off of Craigslist and the seller turned out to be his coworker. His buddy was like, why are you contacting me about my computer? LOL.
