And, I AM remiss in not pointing out that NewtonSales does also have a history of many successful transactions and many satisfied customers.

>>> I would be careful with them as I bought a mid range 2100 model (by their standards) which turned out to be a 2000 with an upgrade, obviously not stated on the website also the picture showed a cover which apparently wasn't included, though when I emailed them the next day a new part was added to the description saying they weren't included. I could have done something but I couldn't be bothered as I had purchased a screen protector anyway also I'm only 15 so I can't really do anything about it.
