Brand new Dell Latitude E6410 Laptop for near $650 bucks. Are they real?

Hi Everyone,
I was searching for a laptop on ebay and I happened to see these laptops from this seller.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120661...

If is brand new, but without warranty ( I dont know how that is possible). but the price is 699 buy it now.
Its an I5 with genuine windows 7.

Does anyone has any idea, why they are so cheap and it there is something fishy in it.

    Dunno, but out of curiosity I googled it and the price in the US is USD699.

    Maybe a grey import, but how would he make any money? Maybe he's one of the people on Border Security found with 20 laptops under his coat? lol! Let us know how you go. I'm worse than a cat where curiosity goes. :)

      I think greenpossum would be right. I dont think they would be able to sell it at that price as a reseller of dell products right? Hence why there would be no warranty (as dell only offers warranty nationally)

      If it was a grey import, they could purchase the 1Yr ProSupport: Next Business Day Onsite Service which extends the warranty internationall. Of course i think for 220, thats seems rather expensive…If the price in the US is 700, and there is a 30% off sale (im just guessing lol) or something then i guess he could make some sort of profit…?

      PS: My parents love border security. I think them seeing all the other asians busted for trying to smuggle in mushrooms and other food products has deterred them from future attempts

      hahahaha. Yea, that was again a surprise factor for me. but i think, in US ebay they are a bit cheaper. May be group sale might get them for 400 or 450 bucks each. or they are repaired ones and seller is hiding that.

        I dont think you can buy extended warranties for repaired ones can you? Also dont forget it costs 39bucks deliver :D Dell does it for free!

        But you should ask them if you could inspect the laptop (if you're located in sydney)…They don't seem to have a shopfront since they havent disclosed their location. Antman76 (or anyone who knows), does your dell laptop have a sticker that you have to remove if you're going to repair the laptop?

          Yes, we can buy extended warranties, if the item is manufacturer refurbished.
          But you gave me a pretty good idea to inspect the item. Lets see, what they say.

          I can't see anything externally like a warranty seal.

  •  

    Well for starters it comes with NO WARRANTY. You have to purchase a warranty from Dell at a starting cost of $230 for 12 mths next business day onsite warranty.

    Oh and I have the E6400 model (before this one) and it is fantastic.

    From the Description

    "Display: .1" Widescreen WXGA (1280X800) AntiGlare WLED LCD Panel For UMA Graphics Card"

    That screen looks pretty small to me :)

    This part of the TOS is an absolute crock:

    "Domestic Delivery: If you pay via PayPal we cannot post to a PO BOX as PayPal requires tracking with signature. This item will be sent to you via registered post within two business days of payment being cleared."

    if its too good to be true, then it probably is.

    I asked the seller about the truth/details of the laptops and why they are so cheap.
    He replied:

    Hi, perhaps you'll find the answers you need if you have a look at our feedback and then carefully read the item's page.

    They do have a very positive feeback, persons buying laptops worth thousand dollars.
    But on ebay, sometimes I am surprised, people buying old laptops for more than 500 dollars, whereas we can get a new laptop by spending 100-200 dollars on a good deal.
    Do we have fake ebay buying also, to gain feedbacks or increase rates?

    it is illegal to sell new products without a statutory warranty

    if you can get a phone and business address i would be happy to contact Fair Trading
