    Hey i was pokin around and i found this site with some pretty cheap MacBook and MacbookPros? Perhaps too good or is it legit? What you all think?

    It's only for the base models but still a pretty good deal.

    A whois lookup to see if the company is older than 3 weeks, plus a check of their contact page to see if they offer an address and phone number for further checks usually is a good quick check.

    Since this company fails the whois and site contact info, no reason to bother looking much further.

    A few things that came to mind looking at this website:

    1) It doesn't say if they are new or used
    2) I doubt they are an Apple Authorized Retailer; which based on my limited understanding could mean no warranty.
    3) On the page is says "Number of processors" and says 2. That's wrong. One processor, two cores.

    You can always go by common sense: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    Or you could use Judge Judy's logic: If it doesn't make sense, it's not true.

    ;)

    Actually, the price looks about right to me. They're selling 2-3 year old macbooks and macbook pros.

    I'd still recommend you don't buy from them. They look dodgy as hell.

    Scam. New site created 9/3/08 by company with a history of rip-offs.

    Are these brand new or used? The prices doesn't look that great.

    I wouldn't trust them not because of their age; they don't have a bloody phone number to contact them!

    Also their SSL certificate doesn't match the store. Did I mention they only take check or money order?

    Agree with the others, that store seems shady, steer clear!
