$150 laptop a scam?
I don't know. I was going to wait for someone else to find out :)
There is a 6 week delivery, so we won't find out for a couple of months whether this is real or not.
If the price point is a difficulty, I can get a very well appointed brand name laptop at the local Walmart for under $600 canadian. Put in a cheap underperforming 3 generations back CPU, get rid of Windows, small amount of ram and do direct sales (Walmart is probably getting $100, Microsoft around $70, service and warranty charges another $30, etc.) and you could see a price around $150-200.
I suspect we will see a large number of these offers in the next while.Buyer beware. The again, I bought a $300 Zen from Creative that lasted 4 months, and they want money to tell me if they will fix it or not.
