After requesting some quotes on computers in China-based global trade site Ali Baba, a friend of mine was bombarded with offers via email.
You can see an example in the image bellow.

- Can a Macbook Pro cost US$ 230?
- If so, how can these companies sell at such a low price?
- Is this economically possible to sell those products at that price?
EDIT: The email came from a szlc-electonic.com domain. That page is down, and it doesn't match the seemingly legit lctech-inc.com nor hktdc.com, both reported by Google as being Shenzhen Technology. It seems to indicate that the email originators are trying to impersonate Shenzhen LC Technology which doesn't sell laptops.
