    hello first time posting!

    So i have been checking out the macs, air and pro, for quite awhile.
    But they are definitely not cheap, so i have been looking for deals everywhere.
    And I stumped on this aveloi.com
    their line ups are all so cheap, for brand new not-refurbished.
    heres a link of macbook pro,

    http://aveloi.com/products.php?product=Apple-MacBook-Pro-13"-2.66GHz-Processor

    I think this is too good to be true and most likely its a scam site,
    but i couldnt find out anything about this website from googling at all.

    Does anybody know?
    I technically can afford a 13 pro, but that will push my savings completely out and yeah, dont mind that I'm cheap, poor college students everywhere nowadays...

    THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    Read the pro page again, realized its actually a 2010 pro.
    But can they really be around that price by now??

    Well they do seem to be shifting old stock... so they may be legit. I would say approach with caution... maybe ask them a question about the machine to see how they handle it.

    That is a 13" MBP that was sold by Apple in 2009 - I've one of those lying around. How can it be "brand new". You don't want to a buy a 3 old MBP for that price and I can't imagine how they could possibly could have something that old brand new and unsealed.

    The website looks like something I cobbled together using notepad in 5 minutes. My recommendation is to spend your money elsewhere.

    AVOID

    When a deal seems to be too good to be true, then it is too good to be true. Keep that advice with you at all times.

    I'd always go with 'better safe than sorry'.

    So go to some other website you trust, pay eventually more, but know that you're taken care of. :D

    I'd say aveloi.com is a scam.

    They have multiple addresses and are not reachable.

    Also, when you look up the whois for the domain registration there is again, an other address and as Administrative Contact, there is even an address in Canada. :D http://www.whois.com/whois/aveloi.com
    So, I'd say keep your hands off aveloi.com.

    The website is definitely not legitimate.

    Thanks guys! I think I'm just gonna get a refurbished one from the apple store.
