I think you're mistaken... "and much more" refers to the included Vapochill unit. Only $999... can't pass that up.

Seriousely, though, I've seen similar ads here in the US. Can't name anything specifically, but I've seen AXP's marked as GHz equal to performance rating.

crap stuff is what it all is, cheap parts that will die in a few...
i bought an old ss7 (when they were the biggest thing) computer with a 300Mhz k6-2 and it died in a year, now that i know more about computers i think it was psu and/or ram realted.
