Cheapest Laptop in the world $150 * Awaiting proof of reliability * - Page 13  

post #121 of 185
We'll soon see if its a scam or not : ''Several readers have contacted us, suggesting that the offer may be a scam. We contacted Medison for more information and received this reply:

"Thank you for writing! First of all: the offer is geniune, and the laptop certainly exists! We are aware of the ongoing debate on various on-line forums about whether this is a scam or not, but hopefully everything will be clarified really soon. For instance, we will arrange a press conference in Sweden within a few days to address any doubts and questions regarding our authenticity."

Hopefully we'll be able to get a review unit in soon and we'll keep you posted. As always, we recommend you wait for our full review before parting with any cash.''

Its an update on the cnet article.http://crave.cnet.co.uk/laptops/0,39...9291844,00.htm

lmao, press conference with who?

i also noticed, if you look at the picture of the laptop, it looks a lot like one of the acer laptops i've seen, and theres a webcam on it too (on the top of the screen in the middle like how the acer laptop has them there that you can flip), but the specs didn't mention anything about a webcam

also the picture of the cyclist looks like it was edited on the laptop, i bet they just took some laptop picture and edited it.

AND, if you go to http://www.medison.se and click on the right banner that says MEDISON (which looks like it was done in paint and saved as jpeg quality) it links you to some myspace punkass video.

so much for professionalism
