I was planning on gettin a 13" macbook anyway for college and using a student discount to get it at a even $1000. Anyway, I was looking around on craigslist NOT for a macbook but for a maschine (music equipment) and this dude is bundling a 15" macbook, a maschine, and studio beats headphones for $1150. 

The ad says they're all in perfect condition and that he's just selling because he doesn't have time to use it. The question is based on appearance alone would you buy this bundle? I know I should just go check everything out in person which I will do but based on first impressions u think everything will be legit and that the computer won't be slow af or w.e?

Check them out first, if all good then buy. Sell them beats though. Also, make sure the maschine has been unregistered so you can reregister with NI.

Definitely selling the beats. Partly cuz I already have a pair but I would sell them anyway and good looks on that I'll make sure to let him now.

One thing though, I asked him out old the macbook was he said 2 years. Idk how I feel about that. Still a good deal or na?

I would say yes because you can add more ram to the macbook. Up to 16 GB. You should also consider swapping out the hard drive for a solid state drive, it will cost a bit though. And another benefit of the older macbooks is that you swap out the optical drive for another hard drive. 
Also ask if the person has any other software synths from NI like massive.

My homie bought a Mac Book off Craigslist for like 500 bucks, and it ended up being stolen from some rich dude. It even had his facebook still logged in and all kinds of shit like that. home boy just erased everything and kept it.

If you go to the Apple store to get repairs done on your MacBook, would they know it was stolen?

I've bought my Mac Pro off craigslist. Best decision I've ever made. Of course there goes without saying, do your research and be PATIENT in finding the best deal and person to buy from. I've contacted a good number of people off CL before finding the right price, person, and most importantly the computer I wanted. Long story short I bought my computer off a 40 something family man who was a computer technician that needed money to pay his mortgage to keep a roof over his family's head. I haggled a deal to buy a $6000 Mac Pro (as it was configured if i decided to buy it new at the Apple store when I bought it) for $1500. Lucked out and serves me to this day.


Check the ad out for yourself and dont be afraid to walk away from a deal. Always ask WHY they are selling.

This. If you ever suspecting of sketchiness then go to a public place/lounge that's usually crowded. That way, it will almost be impossible to get snapped up.
