    It says it has a Core 2 Duo in it.

    It is hard to believe... So hard I'd be scared to place an online order for this item with them. Things that are too good to be true often are. I can almost hear "Well, that item is now out of stock, but we can hook you up with this other (more expensive) laptop."

    I didn't see ANY negative ratings on Amazon's Feedback Ratings -which surprised me. I found some more detailed ratings on http://www.resellerratings.com/store/view/PCRush/page/3 I guess you have to decide for yourselves....

    Well, so long as you buy through Amazon then Amazon will protect you against bogus deals if it were to go south. You technically pay Amazon and then Amazon pays the merchant.

    Chances are someone made a typo, though, and they would actually reject the order as such. Looking on their website, the same laptop is listed for $2,024.

    The pcRUSH-Outlet $940 G74SX-DH72 offer has mysteriously disappeared from Amazon. Why am I not surprised?
