    I've seen the same for eMacs, iPods, iBooks, etc.

    I've been wondering the same question. I question why they would need to test something already on the market, however.

    I think this is a spawn of the Free Ipods method. You may have to complete millions of promotions to get the actual computer.

    Then again, it could be a scam...

    I wouldn't do it.

    i recently found one of those for a sony vaio in my spam mailbox. seemed legit and everything, even after reading the fine print - till i did more searching and checked out the company on the better business bureau bbb.org. lots of complaints. don't bother with it.

    SCAM

    well i guess not really a scam, but you have to spend like $600 or more on credit cards and getting satilite TV. So if you want that stuff go for it, but it isn't worth it.
