Well, I'm in China. I found an online shop here selling dirt cheap Macbook Pros. Here's a link to the machine I'm drooling over: <snip link> I contacted the company and spoke with an agent via MSN. She tells me that the machines are brand new and come WITH the Apple 1-year warranty. As for why they are so cheap, she says they've got a "special arrangement" with the factory that makes them. With shipping and insurance to my town (a few hours south of Beijing), the total cost comes to 379 Euros. Specs: Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo T7600 Processor Speed: 2.33 GHz RAM: 2048 MB Weight: 5.5 lb Screen Size: 15.4 inches Screen Size Type: widescreen Graphics Card: ATI Radeon x1600 Storage Capacity: 120 GB Networking Options: 802.11a/g Primary Optical Drive: Dual-Layer DVD+/-RW I'm going to have a Chinese friend phone her tomorrow to try and suss out whether this is a scam or not. This "company" is located in Beijing. As I am not there (and thus cannot do a "face to face"), my plan would be to send the cash via bank transfer and then cross my fingers... What do you all think? Worth the risk, or totally not?
