hey guys, i was just browsing on this gumtree NZ website.

http://auckland.gumtree.co.nz/c-Stuff-for-Sale-computers-software-Factory-Sealed-2011-Apple-Macbook-pro-500GB-i7-W0QQAdIdZ273974834

why is this mac really cheap? $850 for the 2011 i7... wow?
is it non genuine or something , because these beasts sell at $2000 second hand easily

cheers

Gumtree originated from Australia I think. I would say it is one of the lesser trusted sites on the web - at least this is the case for the Aussie version.
