Is this website for real or fake? Looks like a scam website?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
They sell powerful laptops dirt cheap? Looks like a bogus website, and it makes me sick to my stomach that they don't remove these websites from the internet if they know they're fake. I don't like websites that try to steal your credit card info.

Lol, I clicked into their Computers and Accessories link and it gave me a list of microwaves.

Steer clear.

I just looked at it and it looks fine to me. If you're unsure, check their ratings.

EDIT:

And powerful laptops? Where? I didn't see one that I would ever consider to be "powerful". Maybe, mediocre, but in no way powerful. rolleyes.gif
