Question Have you seen this computer?

OK, one time i go to launch.com and this pop-up comes up telling me "you could win this computer!". It shows this crazy computer with a small color screen mounted right on the front of the case. And for the main display it has a wrap around monitor (like three monitors in one!). Anyways i cant seem to find this pop-up again and i have to find this computer. anyone know where i can find it?
Thanks.

I'm 99% sure you're talking about the one from www.go-l.com (More specifically, This Page)

It's actually suspected to be a hoax.. there's a bunch of information here about the guy that owns the site.. it's a pretty interesting read, but I'm still not sure if the thing is real or not.
