which an Alibaba executive cooperated with a number of vendors who
use this site to defraud customers. Maybe this site is a part of that
Initially I wondered if they might be selling bankrupt stock or
remainders... when I checked their Nikon offerings they were
largely for the D300, which has been replaced by the D300s for
some time (at least here in Japana--assume so elsewhere). But
then I saw an iPad for about half price. THAT seems quite
impossible unless the Chinese manufacturer is diverting stuff
from Apple, in which case how could the guarantee and support
work? The hardware is clearly and uniquely identified. Apple
would be bound to recognize this was a pirated product.
