    this is like half.com where the website is simply a middleman in the transaction.


    Quite honestly, I wouldnt do it. Simply because you dont know if it will work and Paypal insuring you is as good as sending your money through Western Union

    I think if you do order from that site, you will receive a windows netbook and nothing more.

    Exactly. When netbooks came out in force, there were about a dozen "Macbook Air" knock-offs to come out of China, some even had identical boxing and stuff to a real Mac. I even remember one that actually had an apple logo on the lid and everything.

    Several were tested and found to be easy hackintoshes, but it doesn't change the fact that its still a knockoff Atom-based netbook.

    I've just been on their website, and I must say I haven't laughed so much in all my life!

    You really do have to be lacking in grey matter if you part with your monies to these scammers.

    ROFLMAO :D

    they are offering the MacBook clones easy to spot , they state intel atoms inside , and as far as i know apple never did fit atoms in their MacBooks
    , but they are worth the money i have a mate who bought one of those intel atom "MacBooks", looks like a 1:1 copy of the MacBook , and does the job for basic tasks and a bit more and the version he got runs without problems OSX snow leopard (came preinstalled from manufacturer in china ), he bought it of ebay a couple month ago ,way cheaper then a MacBook , more powerful then a iPad2 and cheaper as that too , with the atom 455 dual core 1.6 and nvidia ion GPU , if thats what you need ?, i played a bit with it when i was visiting him in germany and it will definitely keep up with the original MacBook air 1.6, and beats it in HD content due to the nvidia ion , but way cheaper then even a used crumbled MacBook air , he payed euros 170 for it brandnew in box from china just befor christmas , and yes it is still working , and why not the quality is not worse then what you get elsewere from dell, hp , asus , sony and the lot , and for under euros 200 , you cant go wrong , for basic computing and some HD movies

    but i dont know if that site is really shipping it after you payed , better get that sort of stuff of ebay , at least then you got some protection against fraud
