    Hi guys im new here,the reason i posted this question was because i was ripped off a couple of weeks ago,thinking i was buying a sweet new 64GB ipad 2 Wifi 3g
    from a company i found online through the joke of an online store Alibaba
    i ended up recieving 9 fake memory sticks:confused:.Does anyone have any experience with this type of thing,perhaps somewhere out there someone is selling real Apple products at a steal of the price.

    Haha..I find this statement of yours quite humorous. Since Apple products are in such high demand, selling them at lower price than MSRP is an idiotic move unless it is completely fake.

    Apple products in China are more expensive than usual (real ones that is).

    Save yourself the hassle and get your Apple cravings at a legit store, but if you do find yourself a vendor, hats off to you!

    Alibaba is a scam site. Did you really browse there and think "gee, this seems like a legit place to enter my credit card". :confused:

    Apple products in China cost MORE than they do in the US. So the question is not can you buy them there, but rather, why would you want to??
