Dim-but-rich buyers targeted with million pound laptop

Hang on, it's only a Samsung...

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Can this be the world's most expensive laptop?

PreisCompany's pricey laptop on Amazon

Certainly anyone mad enough to cough up almost £1m for this Samsung Series 7 notebook will only get themselves a machine with a standard spec: 2.2GHz Core i7 CPU, 8GB of memory, 15.6in screen, AMD Radeon HD graphics and all the other stuff you'd expect to find on a mainstream laptop these days.

At least Amazon-hosted retailer PreisCompany - based in Klettbach, Germany and by run by one Matthias Nauber, according to Amazon's seller crib sheet - has the decency to include free delivery in that bonkers price.

PreisCompany has a second Series 7 up for grabs for the 'discount' price of £650,772.00, but the spec isn't as good as the more expensive, £937,915.75 model.

Decimal point cock-up? We reckon so.

Canny consumers will instead buy from Amazon itself. Shop around and the higher-spec machine can be yours for a penny under a grand. ®
