Anyway, Mitch contacted Mercantec to see if the company had any units in stock, and he received a short reply saying yes, and asking how many he wanted. Smells pretty fishy to me. If anyone wants to take the plunge and spend $320 to find out if this is a scam, please let me know how it goes.
I just got an email from a Liliputing reader named Mitch who found an online retailer claiming to have the Acer Aspire One in stock. There’s just one problem: Acer isn’t selling these computers yet. Wait, make that two problems. Mercantec says they’re selling the notebook for $320, which is a good $60 below the price Acer is expected to ask. How often do you see that deep a discount before something even hits the shelves.
