The sub-$100 PC is back--sort of.
On Sunday, CompUSA offered a $99.99 PC from America Online, similar to the $99 and free PC deals offered by Internet giants and start-ups back in 1999 and 2000 in an effort to woo customers. The PC, which is powered by an Intel Celeron chip and comes with a monitor and printer, actually costs $549.99, but comes with a $450 of instant rebates. Only five were allotted to each store.
To get one, customers have to sign up for a year of AOL at $23.90 a month.
Thats criminal are they that desperate ? I'd give them another $100.00 to shove Aol up their ass .
