Anyone else think this might be a clever advert?

Didn't mean it to sound like that. I just thought it was pretty cheap. That would be clever though.

Looks like a good deal to me

As Nicholas said, looks fine for pretty much anything. It'd be okay for playing some games, UT2004 for example, Jedi Knight, Spore and he like. Just don't try to play Crysis. And I think it'd last fine for college.

You have 90 days to return it. If you get it, run it through its paces and if you're satisfied, keep it. If not, return it. Love Costco.

It will work fine.

That will work fine for most things. Including Games. If you hook it up to a 50" 1451541x13443341 monitor yeah don't expect much. If you hook it up to a normal montior it will do fine.

That said, It doesn't look like it comes with a monitor.
