    Scam. None of the "verified" graphics are linked anywhere.

    No information provided under 'Contact Us'. No information provided under 'About Us'. Do they sound like they believe in transparency and believe in customer relations? Sounds a lot like a fly-by-night operation to me: Get your money, generate a long list of disgruntled customers, and then vanish.

    scam

    Sorry to be redundant, but STAY AWAY from this site. As mentioned previously, the picture is NOT of a PowerBook G4, it is of a new unibody MacBook Pro. Its price alone should raise red flags, as well as the total lack of information about the company. To the OP: Run as far away from these people as you can.

    Its a con

    I placed an order and used Paypal for security. The order status sat at processing for 5 days so I sent several emails asking for an update. I received no response whatsoever. I filed a dispute with Paypal and the same day the order status changed to Paypal transaction reversed. The money hasn't been returned 5 days later.

    Also if you check they have 151 in stock of almost everything, enough said. The expression too good to be true is held up here very well, my advice is to steer clear

    Their prices seem to be all over the map, with some old units costing well above what new units cost, while others are way too good to be true. This is a poorly executed scam. I can't believe you would even place an order at all!!!
