Hi, I need some opinions about this eBay seller from the U.S.A.: macman218
I've talked to some people who have bought stuff from him and they all were happy about their products. His feedback score is great, and if you go through all of the comments left for him you can notice that he responds to customers who seem less than happy.
I still want to be careful, but he has returned all of my emails super fast (within half an hour, in fact). The price is only like $300 less than the actual price too, so it doesn't seem that shady. He has a .mac email address when responding.
I did an intensive search of him on the internet, and came up with the following references:

(all relevant terms associated with the seller are highlighted).
As you can see, I'm trying to be as thorough as I can with this seller.
For a Black macbook (1GB RAM, 160GB HD), upgraded to 2GB RAM + Canadian shipping, it comes to something like $1575 (according to him). I'd say this price is a great deal, while not getting into "scam" territory. Taxes will, of course, be added on (so the actual price will end up being around $1800), but he's going to try and lessen this by claiming the product to be worth less than it actually is (as some sellers from outside of Canada would if you ask them to). Not sure if I should be posting that part here, but anyway.
If I bought this from the Apple store it would cost around: $2022 (includes upgraded RAM, which I wouldn't have bought from Apple, but just putting here for price comparison; taxes, and student discount all included in this price).
Any opinions would be appreciated.
