A colleague, who was also interested in buying a laptop, had pointed me to this site www.MobileYardSale.com. It had almost unbelievable prices for laptops.
A brand new Compaq 2031 which costs Rs.59,990 is available for Rs.31,000 only. An IBM ThinkPad R51 which costs Rs.58,000 is available for Rs.33,000. Apparently all these are brand new laptops with one to three years warranty.
It seems to be a shop in Bangalore judging from the contact phone numbers. Mobile – 98804 41546 and landline: 080-30900605. My colleague had got these from an advt from Sulekha classifieds. Both the numbers could not be reached.
I smell something fishy about this. The prices are too good to be true. Can someone from Banglore throw some light on this?
