    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 .

    That's another $287 in itself.

    is that "$23.90 x 12" charge for aol dial-up internet???

    'cause if it is... then uh why in the world would somebody wanna commit to a year of overpriced 56k dial-up? "welcome to the 20th century!" you know?

    $100 up front + $287 commitment to useless aol... so it's actually a $387 celeron computer?

    AOL can burn in hell with Microsoft, IMHO.
