Default electroforless.com - opinions?

A Macbook for 792.00? A PS3 for 386.00? An iPhone for 325.00? A Mac Pro desktop for 1899.00?

Does anyone know how this website can offer such low prices, and if it's letigimate or not?

Take a gamble and buy something for 40, like a quality mouse, and if you get it, it's legit.

Current Build (Hope to finish by late spring):
Intel Q6600 g0
Asus Maximus Formula
geIL Evo 2GB (2x1gb) DDR2
ATI HD3870 X2 or Nvidia 9800 X2?
2x 150gb RaptorX (Have it)
Thermaltake Toughpower 750w PSU (Have it)
Antec P182 Case
HP w2207 22" Monitor (Have it)
