Just yesterday was introduced and saw for the first time the infamous "comparison" page
by a co-worker. At first glance I was taken aback as the one who showed it to me expounded about how the "proof" is right there as to how much better the 7700 is over the XPS2.
If unaware of the misrepresentation any uninformed prospective buyer could easily be persuaded that the 7700 was the only way to go between the two choices!!
I wouldn't be so naive as to say that it is "marketing's ignorance of their product". This is as slick and deceptive as it gets. Desperate people do desperate things and this rat has been backed into a corner and is showing its' true colors.
Don't know exactly how long this gem of marketing mischief has been on their website but seeing from other posters, it has been there at least from 02-28-2005 by sonicwind's counterpost
