Has anyone bought from www.dellonlinestore.co.za or know of anyone who has? Is this a legitimate store?

Specifically, I am looking at this offer, which seems to me like a great deal: http://www.dellonlinestore.co.za/showProduct.aspx?SEName=inspiron-15-3543-i5&ProductID=123

As far as I can tell, this price includes VAT and delivery. The website seems super-legit, with company registration details, physical address etc. Am I just being suspicious?

Also, any comments on the laptop and alternatives in that price class?
 
Looks pretty legit, but that's as much as I can say... Have not heard of or used them before.

The site looks like it is Dell that owns it, and not a 3rd party reseller/agent.

Update: Check out the whois info for their domain name. Seems to be hosted with Rackspace, but domain is registered to a local company - Digital Planet.

This makes me somewhat suspicious. I also could not find physical address details on the website itself.

Digital Planet - they do HP shop as well, so this would've made me more secure about the purchase. Nothing wrong with them. If OP runs into any issues with DP, send me PM - I'll hook you up with someone there to moan to.

I use the the HP shop often so if this is the same crowd there shouldn't be a problem.
 
Reviving a rather old thread as I too am looking at a machine on thier site and want to part with my cash


What is the general consensus.
  1. Trust worthy or not?

https://www.dell.com/en-za/lp
Then click on Dell Store it takes you directly to dellonline.co.za
Dell.com having an official link to dellonline.co.za

I would say that gives it some credibility that it's probably legit.

This. I bought a Dell Active Pen from them 2 months back. It's legit. And service and pricing seems good.
 
Bought a Dell Laptop from dellonline.co.za a couple of weeks ago. Arrived safe and sound within a couple of days, nothing unexpected.
