I purchased an Alienware pc on craigslist which is going for 3000 plus 30 shipping on Costco for 1350 and haggled my way down as he needed money and he added 2 year warranty which was another 250 so total cost of pc was around 3300 (but more on warranty below.. scam) and I got it for 1350. Saw on ebay same specs people are paying around 2k for this and was gonna go that route but decided to keep it. Basically I'm saying yeah if you do research well and know your stuff you certainly can. You just gotta know the stuff and deal . Takes time but if I ended up selling this and profit around 700 then it was worth it.

Keep in mind though , this guy sold me a great laptop and ownership transfer but the 2 year warranty was taken out as he called dell and cancelled the 2 year warranty. I was pissed cause he scammed me. But still got a good deal . Craigslist is not very legit but if you know your stuff and research has it's purpose
