    PC Scam Artist?

    I have been reading threads on this guy all over the web. Many people think he is simply a scam artist attempting to rip off VERY rich people that don't know any better. I had never heard of him until recently.

    It's legit actually... when I originally saw the press-release for this "thing" a while back, I looked into the company, and called them up... they laughed at my question about if it was real, and told me that it wasn't the first time they'd been asked that question over the phone It's not a "him"... Liebemann Inc, is pretty big, you haven't heard of them probably because they target the scientific community, mostly.

    But geezuz gawd, that $8,000 PC.... ::drool::

    Seriously, if you doubt them, call the company.
