Alright so I've been in the market for a cheao netbook for a month or two now just seeing what is out there and then I ran across these on ebay


Now if that link needs to be deleted do so but I'm also tossing up the computer details

Forgot to add the fact that I can Buy this "Netbook" for under 100 dollars new and sealed, and that includes shipping.

______ Now the computer is obviously generic and some of the sellers call it a GHS-Tech others Call it a Delux-tech.

I thought/think it was a scam but I could be wrong I figured without it being a so called "Name-Brand" it might turn up to be cheaper... all the reviews I've read have been positive for it and they have sold alot.... Just wanted to see if a techy could tell me why it's so damn cheap... Is it the hardware or something else?

Nevermind I found it and it's a piece of junk.. could possibly install my own hardware inside of it and kick it up a notch for cheap but I think I'm just gonna settle on an Acer.
