Bought that MacBook on eBay? Be Patient!

For all those who were able to buy that MacBook today in that 10 minute window, congratulations not many got in!  This should do very well on Amazon.

Don't want to miss it next time?  Follow me on Twitter.  I don't post deals often but when I do, I post them immediately to Twitter.

Here is a word of advice on pricing:

You either need to get your MacBook(s) to Amazon before everyone else and sell immediately or you need to be patient.

There will be other sellers selling the same thing.  Prices will definitely fall, you can be sure about that.

Don't panic when the price dips to $880.  Prices will come back as long as there isn't another eBay sale (Seeing how fast this one sold it is possible that the seller will look to procure more - they sold over 2,000 of them).  If you sell at $900 you will still make money but not as much as you can.  Most likely there will be a race to the bottom during the first month.  Many sellers will panic and sell too low.  Since you are smart, you will be left standing to reap the profits!

I am ready to hold onto this for 2, 3 or even 6 months if necessary, paying some storage fees but hopefully avoiding long term storage fees.  Prices will come back on Apple products, they always do.

I hope it goes well for you!
