Apparently, neither does Lenovo. I just got a Newegg mailer which listed a Lenovo notebook
for $300. When I checked the specifications, CPU was an E-300.

If the Average Joe person doesn't know any better, then perhaps that's even MORE of a reason as to why researching is the best option before a purchase.
What of numerous folks who just rely on what the Best Buy sales rep tells them? Or those who rely on advice from friends/relatives/co-workers who aren't quite as up to date when it comes to technology? I always do my research before I buy tech stuff. However, the current practice of marketing computers with netbook/nettop level processors as regular notebooks and desktops is just unacceptable.
