    I've bought multiple times from AliExpress and never had a problem before. But now I wanted a gaming laptop and I found that AliExpress has some INCREDIBLE CHEAP laptops for as low as $50 or even less. o.0

    Has anyone bought a Laptop from AliExpress before? Its secure?

    Thanks for that. I have found a few more China Websites with cheap Laptops. I searched a bit and found that there the Laptops are cheaper than the rest of the world. First because No Brands and second cuz theyre made there. Is this real?

    I forgot
    99 times out of 100 those "cheap" laptops are either rejects from quality testing and have a ton of problems, or are just craptops that were switched into a different case. I would never buy any cheap computer, laptop or otherwise, from a Chinese seller unless it was proven to be a legitimate product...which is near impossible, with the amount of scamming that goes on in the Chinese markets.
