As far as eBay goes, if your gut isn't quite feeling right about something you're better off not getting it. While it may be a perfectly good computer, even favorable to standard mac configurations, you know nothing about the quality of work performed on the modifications.

A used computer is much like a car, except you don't know how many "miles" are on it. When there's non-standard equipment and it's for sale on an auction website like eBay, you have to wonder if something went wrong with it.

Again, it may be a perfectly good computer, and it may be exactly what you're looking for, but if someone doesn't sound quite right about it, you're best off waiting for something that's less risky.

However: that computer may be an older model than is currently offered. I'm not positive, but that may have been a standard configuration from last year: which is why you aren't able to configure a new MBP to match it.
