That website is OK - it's KL Computers Ltd the real company you'd be doing business with.
The only problem is the delivery date is probably later than you want. The Amazon store can have it there by Monday.

I think it's a good value, considering is quite powerful graphics card.
It's top spec LCD screen isn't available on a lot of lesser models.
