MDG made a killing when it used "bait and switch" tactics to sell unsuspecting folks laptops powered by "Intel Dual Core" processors whereas the customers actually thought they were buying "Intel Core 2 Duo" processors. The only reason my friend found out about the bait and switch was when we compared Vista (the OS of choice at the time) WEI scores... I had bought a comparable laptop from Dell. His scores were lagged well behind the ones from Dell and that was when I started investigating what was under the hood of his laptop.
