    GearHost Promotion - Amazing Deal or Horrible Lie?

    "June Promotion:
    NEW Dell Insperion 8200
    Laptop : On Annual Signups
    "


    Is what it said on their site for shared hosting. How could somone give you a free laptop for using such a small account?

    I got the link from here: http://www.gearhost.com/services/hos...s-features.asp


    Opinions? Help me out..

    UPDATE:

    Had the page bookmarked and din't see the front page.. it's just a drawing to win it. *sigh* Sorry.

    On the prices/features page (the page originally quoted), it says New Dell Inspiron 8200 Laptop...On Annual Signups. It is very deceptive (although I am sure Ryan didn't mean to trick anyone) and I am sure there will be some upset people.

    10 lbs or not, a new laptop for 108 bucks would be friggin' AWESOME!!! My laptop is almost that heavy anyway!

    The wording is terribly off, email them and let them know. it should read something more like, "Entrance into the June contest for a..." or something to that extent.

    Hmh, I doubt it is a something that they give to everyone, it probably is a contest, and one line in the Agreement page refers to it. $1500 laptop, for $108, I doubt it.

    http://www.dell.com/us/en/dhs/produc...inspn_8200.htm , It's 8 pounds by the way. And who cares? I'd take an 8 pound laptop for $108.
