Waah! I want my Barbie PC! (I don't quite understand this; can't someone just put their own decals on their computer? What, exactly was the market here? This one seems to go into the "unbelievably stupid product concept" file.)

Actually, it's a pretty sad story. I caught a bit on the news where this mother borrowed money from her father to buy a $2200 system through Patriot for her kids' Christmas present and she was just absolutely teary-eyed that they wouldn't be getting their Christmas presents. I hope the owners of Patriot burn in hell and get sent to jail for this debacle.
