Ok, we all love newegg.

I need to get a replacement laptop and i saw this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220412

for my needs, i think its perfect.

However, its considerably cheaper here!

i like newegg... but this is too good of a deal to pass up.
Does it sound fishy though?

Interesting. They only have 20 or so product. Could be from grey market? As long as you purchase it with a good credit card like AE, it think you can take the risk.

It looks like a nice machine...no bad reviews, just a ding on the sound.

I noticed they don't have verisign or any other certificate listed on their website, so I wouldn't touch them in a million years.

Nor would I.

The "good" review was the first one, probably from the site itself, designed to sucker in other buyers. Note the way "elektronik" is spelled, and the first reviewer's incomplete grasp of English.

Interesting. I emailed Newegg and told them about the photo theft. Maybe they can get them shut down.
