just found a funny typo on this (http://www.promax.com/Products/Detail/3169) site. I attached a photo if the site decides to fix this huge typo.

It's ProMax again, but that site has so many interesting typos lately - it's hard to understand what's going on.

Like before, the body text doesn't look too bad.

But its funny to see the typos in the specs and not in the price....

LCD iMac for 199.99!!!

D :D

OS X 10.2 for $20000+ wasn't funny enough? :D

I'm not sure if it was ProMax with that error, but I found it funny.

Eventually there will be a uMac in our future at 1.6MHz. :p :p

as you can see the [title] is 800GHz...its called puffing up your search engine hits and hopefully seeing results in sales. since the body states clearly that its 800MHz, they would claim no responsibility for the typo. Some businesses just have ZERO ethics.

Anyone who buys from that site just because it says 800 GHz I would slap. That is just plain idiotic...

These guys are a riot. :rolleyes: Dual 1.5GHz PowerMacs and 800GHz iMacs. The titles and main listing are consistantly incorrect, but the descriptions are accurate. This can only be hurting their sales, not helping it. I would NEVER buy from an online store that has contradicting specs, even if I knew what the correct ones were. To me it says these guys couldn't care less about accuracy, so they definitely wouldn't get my money.
