Is this company legit or a scam?

Hey everyone, first post here :D

I have been searching for a good place to buy a gaming laptop without killing my savings.

They have this laptop @ newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152207 ( discontinued )

But at this place I found called discountlaptops.com they have the same laptop for just under $250.00
http://www.discountlaptops.com/product/msi-gx640-260-15-4-inch-gaming-laptop-black-red/2631358108_2_1

Have any of you ever purchased from them or found them out to be a scam? The price seems to good to be true ( which I have found 95% of the time ends up not being legit )


Hopefully you can help!

Thanks,
vince

  1. Here are reviews for Discount Laptops:

    http://www.resellerratings.com/store/DiscountLaptops

    Most seem to be pleased with the company.

    Good luck
  2. well the website looks like crap there's zero specifications on the website so unless you can place an order over the phone after verifying the hardware I really doubt that you'd get a last gen gaming laptop (1st gen i5 with 5850) for under $500. it might not be the latest or dicontinued but it's still good hardware that tops many consumer models out there for $450.
  3. Dude - I bought a sager from discountlaptops.com about five years ago and I got totally ripped off. The laptop died about a year in and even though I bought an extended warranty they didn't honor it (apparently their warranty underwriter went bankrupt). They tried to fix it but did a crap job - basically in the end I got stuck with a 2000/dollar paperweight.

    The owner of the company basically told me Tough Sh*t. AVOID this company. They don't give a crap about their customers or the products they sell.
