Last week, I bought a 1.67 GHz 15" AluBook on eBay (Buy-It-Now for $710) with pretty stock specs. It arrived today. I opened it up, and the first impression I got was of a PowerBook in fantastic shape. Hardly no blemishes, etc. Push the power button, and "BEEP!" So along with all the stock hardware (plus AirPort Extreme, Bluetooth, SuperDrive, etc), it also comes with a dead RAM slot that wasn't disclosed in the auction description.
I contacted the seller and asked for either a partial refund or full exchange, but the seller indicates in the listing that he doesn't issue refunds, and exchanges/returns will only be offered for DOA items. The seller hasn't responded yet (not that I've given him much time).
What should I do at this point? I haven't heard from the seller, but based on the auction description, I'm not hugely optimistic about either possibility I offered. Interestingly, the seller also offers a SquareTrade Warranty (whatever the heck that is). Has anyone here ever bought a SquareTrade Warranty? If so, what does it cover?
