I emailed both John Howard and AndrewCarter about their great deals since I am in Montreal and prefer to buy locally. AndrewCarter never responded, even when I offered the asking price. John Howard replied to me saying that he was in Toronto and was moving to Montreal and if I wanted the Imac shipped instead of waiting for him. I told him I'd wait and I never heard from him again. Regardless, the best thing is to buy locally, and face-to-face. People in T.O. and in Vancouver are quite lucky as there seems to be a number of used Macs for sale. Unfortunately, in Montreal, it's hard to find a used Mac, and even when you do, people are asking outrageous prices for them. I'll end up buying new for sure in the end.
