Is this a joke ?:
http://www.medisoncelebrity.com/

... or is someone trying to steel my money without sending anything ?
Seriously... it's impossible, this site will probably vanish in 4 weeks (with a lot of money..)

Greetings,
Amp

It sells the old intel M370 pentuim 4m laptops they should be dirt cheap by now.

Dell had similar spec ones upto 1st quarter 2006 then switched to core solo and core duo intel t1200 - t2600.
Would not trust them.
If you need a new lappy check out the refurbished part of dell website as they have new / canceled order laptops there 15" for us$600 or even on Ebay or used to have.

i don't see a real and more detailed specification .... when i click to 'specification' link is only pricing policy again in another frame .... and they want right from the first time, you name and you & friends e-mail adress, if they are serious full specs should pe online, easy to see and judge yourself ... look like a marketing hoax ....

I have just had a look and when you click on the 'product' link it shows a very detailed specification. It certainly does seem to fall into the 'too good to be true category' but ...
If you do a search for "Medison Celebrity" you will find lots of stuff about it on the web. So far i have found lots of suspicion but no one actually saying it is a scam.

rofl, I agree, but it's nice for someone who only reads websites and chat a little with a small budget ...

I notice that their "parent" company http//:www.medion.se does not appear to list any products. They list no phone numbers with an excuse saying they are down due to high demand. Their postal address is a UK address despite being a sweedish domain name. This is about as big a scam as you can get. Nothing seems right about this company. I would not touch it with a shitty stick.
