Well RSS feeds are basically XML, and you can use various techniques to parse XML and display it on your own website.

If you're using PHP I suggest looking at the CURL extension and SimpleXML

Something like this should bring a list of latest macbooks, but whether that is how the site works I don't know - they might have some sort of reseller account which maybe offers a better api.

PHP Code:
<?php

    $url 
'http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/rss/?_nkw=Macbook&rt=nc&_catref=1&_rss=1&_sacat=175672';

    
$session curl_init($url);
    
curl_setopt($sessionCURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFERtrue);
    
$data curl_exec($session);
    
curl_close($session);

    
$xml_data = new SimpleXMLElement($data);

    foreach (
$xml_data->channel->item as $item)
    {
        echo 
$item->title '<br>'
            
$item->link '<br>'
            
$item->description '<br>'
            
$item->pubDate '<br><br>';
    }
