I assume it's new, but I'm sure for that good a price there must be a drawback

Yeah, I just bought one for ~$350US a week or two ago, that price is about right. Mine was made in Indonesia, but the build quality is still good.

Just to make sure you know this (because I almost fell for it..)

They show you the nice, cheap price, and then when you buy it they add on VAT and any other taxes plus delivery to the UK with them is about £90 itself.

Great if you are in the states, sucks in the UK.

Hope that helps!

Shop arround in the UK and you'll find them for the same price, without all the shipping/importing/taxes and other snags.

Certain stores are literally giving them away, MACs had 3 in for a little under £170 and went like stuff off a shovel, Hunt around, e8ay is actually MORE expensive
