    And a VGA port OR adapter that doesn't cost 30 thousand pounds sterling.

    Pay attention to the text. It doesn't make sense XD

    One site somewhere ran a feature 'keeping it real fake'. I think it was Engadget. Their fake Sony Vaio review was very nice!

    Yup, it was Engadget. Man people have too much free time reverse engineering the originals XD

    I wonder if this web site is getting these computer chassis from the same chinese company that makes them for Apple? Externally they look almost identical to Apple's products.

    Look so much like Apple's products because they were lifted off Apple's of site.

    Probably not even real merchandise, and a scam site.

    Looks like the photoshoped the Apple logos off the iMacs, note the Apple logo on the Mouse.

    If they do send stuff, likely looks only vaguely similar at first glance.

    I couldn't find any price list or technical details on the site. Do they really sell the knockoff macs?

    They Photoshopped out the Apple logos but left the menu bar at the top.

    They should've at least showed some dignity. Buy 1:1 knock-offs from Asia or something I'm glad nobody bought one simple because that would show how stupid some people can be if they really fall for that.
