  1. Maybe I’m crazy but they sell laptops with current technology processors, etc. for 369 at Circuit City. What is so crazy about a 150 laptop as a jump off product for a company that doesn’t have the history in IT?

    How much profit do you think is in the 369.00 model sold retail?

    I ordered one and will see.

  2. Hi,
    Please send the correct configuration details of this laptop and please let me know if you have some contact address to meet you in sweden.
    kind regards,

  3. I ordered one what have you got to lose? 2checkout has a thread in their forums about it and if its a scam they will refund the money as will your credit card co if you don’t receive physical goods.

  4. hmm, by the looks of the engadget comments, this may well be a scam. lets try to keep it on radar until someone have gotten the actual physical product in hand.
