    Nope, me neither just read the FAQ and it sounds well dodgy, "First 50 participants etc" plus they can't spell; many typos :p

    Nah... this is a scam. Apple's pricing is extremely rigid, so anyone selling an iBook this cheap would have to either be scamming or taking a loss.

    If you even have to ask whether it's a scam, it's a scam.

    This scam is so blatant, it makes *YOU* look bad, as it makes me suspect you of being the scammer trying to spam the forums.

    Not that you are the scammer, but come on! Caveat emptor.

    Well considering they can't even spell Pound Sterling correctly, I'm going to say... yes they're totally legal (sarcasm).
