Alienware M17x r4 For Only $1,100???

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi. I recently came across a site that sells many laptops for a cheap price and found this M17x.

http://www.mall-best.com/dell-alienware-m17x-r4-2737ghz-i73740qm-2gb-gtx-675m-16gb-1-p-1530.html

I was wondering is this site legitimate? Please help me.

Everything related to the site is stated to be scams and whatnot. I would steer clear. You'd be much better off buying a Sager NP9170 off XoticPC.com even if you have to spend another $150. Best spend a little more from a legit site than not get your purchase at all.

Also, what kind of website name is Mall-Best? That sounds like a poorly translated Chinese knock-off title. Not worth the chance.

I sent an email to them and asked why their laptops are so cheap and they responded with this.

"Hello
Our goods directly from the factory, without any other additional costs. Therefore cheaper. Thank you!"

The Administrator is in china, yet their address is in utah, seems a bit fishy. but you could always go ahead and order it, if you don't get what you ordered, call your credit card company and have them remove the "fraudulent charges". most CC companies have a policy that you aren't responsible for fraudulent charges to your credit or debit card

EDIT: The website is only 3 1/2 months old, I'd take the risk, but then again I'm also very good at getting bank of america to remove bogus charges from my card.

Bank of America is actually really good about that one. They're really good about that with me too. smile.gif

But yeah... might be worth it just to try. Might also be a refurb laptop too. That could be a reason for the low price. wink.gif
