i can't believe you're even asking this question. Then again, i suppose you did try and fit the contents of a CD onto 500 floppies :-)

No...obviously. The £20 puts you on a list of people awaiting a laptop. As more people join your name is moved up the list. There are literally hundreds of these 'scheme' awaiting to dupe the unwary and idiotic. I will not bother you with the simple maths involved in these dubious referal/ladder schemes, suffice to say that you have an outside chance (aka nil) of getting a computer. Anyhow that laptop is not exactly an item that one would covet or sell your children for.

Old adage time........ If it seems too good to be true then it probably is.


  GANDALF <|:-)> 00:52 10 Aug 2004 are the one that bought 500 is all clear now. ;-)))))

Remember this basic rule in life, dear 13 years pal.

There are some big compinies sell used laptops for around £100. £20 for a laptop is really a joke.

if you read the small print, it states that if the laptops all go, they will supply a 12.5 kilo gold bar instead....straight from the bank of england.

Isn't this the old pyramid scam?

Any organisation that states: "Windows XP
Microsoft® Windows® XP is the next version of the Windows operating system" isn't to be trusted - the OS three years old now...:-)
