    Try a search on this site for these jokers .... ;)

    These idiots have been around for years, peddling their silicon using alien technology.

    Still waiting for them to do more than the computer equivalent of movie special effects.

    Back every year with a new company name, if they were asking for investments -- I'd say "pump and dump."

    Usually anytime you see a giant, horribly pixellated American flag GIF, on a corporate homepage, it's totally legit. My corporate branding guidelines actually call for them.

    Ask yourself, if this were real wouldn't you have heard about it on the news or something?

    Don't let the flashy website fool you. Look past the awesome GIF.

    They gave them one last year, and there ain't nothing to show for the awards they gave this crap during CES 2005. :rolleyes:

    If you think they are real, buy one.

    These bozos has tracks back several years, with no product for consumers.

    I like the bit that says:
    Does this mean that $8500 is the case only?

    <i>Fibers Optical cables</i> as a bridge to the system?!
    Intense.

    I dont even know why someone would ask if this is real or not. Ive seen stuff on Fark's Photoshop Fridays that looks more realistic than this.

    Seriously dude, look at the website again! My gran could have designed a better site than that and she thinks that i'm her sister sometimes and not her grandson.

    It's BS. When you look at their screenshots near the bottom of the page, you'll see that they're running Windows XP Pro (Version 2002) Service Pack 2. Now, I don't know what if you guys remember, but XP Pro 2002 SP2 is 32-bit only. Ergo, it can only recognize up to 2 GB of memory. Now...they could have modified the OS....but if they did then Microsoft is going to sue their asses and that would kill any aspirations of theirs pretty damn quick,

    Uh...hello!?! Everyone is missing the fact that they highlighted the power button! We all know that major corporations will show you their power buttons in order to impress you.

    Well, it's true, isn't it? All other things being equal, the system with the light-up power button is generally the better one, isn't it? :D That's what I've been basing *my* purchasing decisions on. Cuz this stuff is too complicated! :mad:

    :eek: :eek:

    Plus, you've got to admit that AOpen has improved their models over time....

    Hilarious (Linux®?? never seen it with an ® before)

    A month ago they said it was a Quantum computer. Now, aparently, it turns out it was only the brand (they probably figured out the idea of a quantum computer running XP is downright absurd).

    What a drag

    Perhaps this is because you always turn up to your Gran's place wearing bad drag?
