Default Newegg Alternative?

I usually use Newegg for any online hardware purchases that I need, relative to purchasing computer parts or anything of the like - but my friend has come to me with a plight. He is finally sure of what laptop he wants to purchase (Asus F3SV-B1), however on, the product is not in stock. Another website has the laptop,, but I'm a little sketchy about using this website.

The other thing I'm curious about - Newegg's price is 1598 + $14.99 shipping, whereas ExcaliberPC's price is only 1499 with free shipping. It's not often that you pay a premium to use Newegg, but I checked into Excaliber, they seem to be a legit company with a 4.5 lifetime rating from

Does anyone have any experience with this company? Would you recommend such an investment as a laptop purchase from them?

I know nothing of ExcaliberPC (probably a bad thing, but you never know). The only alternatives to NewEgg that I trust really are Xoxide, ZipZoomFly, and FrozenCPU.
