    No. PR is a small indicator of a quality site.

    Could. Sometimes sites just get good PR for no reason. Probably some type of bug.

    What did you use to check the backlinks to the site?

    If it has 1 link from a PR4 page, especially on a higher PR domain, it could be real PR2 that will stay.

    I'll buy it if it's in the top 100. But before buying I've to check first its main keyword. If all the 10 pages in SERPs are not too competitive (PR4 & below) I'll take it...that is if I can afford the amount. :)

    Yes but it uses Yahoo which is pretty useless now for checking backlinks. Try Majestic SEO and see if you get the same results.

    PR doesn't determine the amount of visitors coming to the site, what really helps in the rankings is the number of backlinks coming to the site. If there are no backlinks then it means that you should get ready to finish someone else's work

    Depending on the cost, the niche and age I would pick it up. You could always 301 it to a site in a similar niche and pick the age and PR up.

    If you are using the domain as a money site, then the PR doesn't matter. What matters is whether the domain has any good existing backlinks or aged? But if you are using it as a pumper site to funnel link juice, then this PR3 site is literally useless as the PR will drop in the next update.
