    Hey, I'm new here! =) *waves* Usually I just check out the rumor pages but today I came across something I wanted to share and confirm.

    So I was browsing through the internet looking for cheap deals on an Apple LED Cinema Display and lo and behold I find one for $599. Now I must say it is Refurbished according to their description but supposedly a new refurb. I tried calling their store but they said their office hours were until 5p.m.

    I was wondering if anyone heard of these people before -TronicsTown - and whether they were fraudulent. Even used displays on Ebay go for over $700 so this was very very tempting!

    Any thoughts would be very much appreciated!

    Oh and here's the link:

    That piece doesn't even look like an actual store... :eek:

    They're $699 in the refurb store. That's good enough.

    Site was created 4/1/09. Yeah, it's scam.

    Run away!

    If in doubt about a store, check resellerratings.com

    TGTBT - too good to be true.

    What why does that site look like a blog?

    Yea I know...I didn't get it either. I was first thinking it would send me to a link of a store where it would be at that price...but then it turns out the shopping cart was apart of their site! :confused:

    Of course, I'd rather get it from Apple directly. Thanks for all your replies. I just wanted to know if anyone saw a place like that before because it was REALLY weird.
