Sure, if the persons feedback is good and plentiful then why not? That feature of Ebay is pretty trustworthy for the most part.

I bought the one I am typing on right now off of Ebay. Great deal on a good laptop. Like they said above, if the feedback is up there, and positive, then go for it.

less risk and some really good deals, plus they offer 3 year warranties

In January of 04'I bought a brand new in the box Compaq laptop with DVD-Rw drive, 30 gig hd, wi-fi, XP home, all restore disks...etc..for $800....about 600 dollars less than they were selling the exact same model for at CompUsa, BestBuy, Office Depot, and Im sure several other stores.
Check the feedback carefully and run as fast as you can from anyone giving you a long story about how they are overseas due to family emergencies and will accept Western Union wire transfers only....they are a scam. You can get some fantastic deals on computers on Ebay but it takes a little research to get what you want.

FUCK Canada
