You can now buy Macs and iOS devices from an Apple authorized reseller on eBay. It’s unclear who the seller is.
According to 9to5Mac, there is no information on where everything is coming from, but 99.7 percent of the reviews are positive. They say it may be run by Apple, but they said no one at eBay would go on the record as to whether or not that’s the case.
They also list the following as things that are offered by both Apple and this eBay store:
- Full one-year warranty
- Returned to like-new condition
- iPads/iPods include a new battery
- Received complete burn-in testing
- Original OS re-installed
- Repackaged with manual and cable
- Final quality inspection by Apple
They also note that the prices are identical to those on Apple’s refurbished store.
If it is run by Apple, it’s really nothing more than just another avenue of getting their products in the hands of consumers. Some people shop eBay looking for deals on Apple gear, this may be the company trying new things.
