I had multiple email exchanges with B-the-Box. It was disconcerting that the names of Sales persons writing B-the-Box email replies were almost never mentioned. It made me think that the company was a fraudulent Chinese company, so I searched other vendors like PowerMac. But after further online research, I decided B-the-Box was "real", and I placed my online order.
The rest of the story is positive as they stocked an iMac unit I could use. Once payment was made, the shipment to Oriental Mindoro was much faster than originally stated. The computer was perfectly boxed with bubble wrap and an additional outer carton. It arrived in perfect condition. I set it up, migrated data from a previous Mac mini backup, and it is running the way it should.
I will buy from B-the-Box again, with no worries, even if they conceal the names of the sales reps you are dealing with :)
