I don't see where people are coming of with "this is a scam". So far the only thing that is happened is someone with no other transactions has won the auction. Mackowski, you're in the best position here. I don't know what you advertised on your auction, but don't send the laptop until the money is cleared. What's the big deal? You should still be on your guard, though. Don't let the guy talk you into any strange arrangements like shipping before you've had a chance to get cleared cash in your hand. I think a US, verified PayPal payment is very safe. Also, any kind of US Money Order, especially a Postal Money order.
