    I've googled and googled, and most of the site review websites claim it is a scam, because the address doesn't exist, blablabla. But there are a few reviews by people that say that they have bought from this site and it is legit. Apparently, the address does exist (Zwee LLC, 2023 58th Ave Cir E. Suite K6405 Bradenton, FL 34203) (I checked via Google Maps). But the prices seem too good to be true. Can anybody verify this site's legitimacy?

    According to whois, the domain was registered in 1998 so not exactly a newbie.

    I don't have to back up anything. It's your money; go for it! Then you can tell us for certain!

    I wouldn't buy from them.
    The whole website seems too unprofessional for a shop.

    Also the F.A.Q has:
    "Is Zwee.com A Scam?"

    That question alone would make me close the browser window.

    Anyways, for a $1000+ item, I would ONLY go to trusted and well known stores/websites.

    LOL. If that is a frequently asked question, I think you have your answer. Still uncertain OP?

    If it looks sketchy, and you have to search if it is legit or not, and if the address is for a house, you probably don't want to send $1200 their way. Especially on the internet, if it looks too good to be true, it is.

    If you have to ask...+3

    This link says Don't Do It!!!

    Come on- really- so you think they got these legit (even if they have any computers) and want to sell them this cheap? Why? Are they making money by doing so? Only if they are hot! Even if they are not hot- many hands had to move them from an Apple reseller to this Zwee you speak of.....like I said....if you have to ask!
