Best Buy: "Media Center - OLD / DO NOT USE"

Best Buy Canada's online megastore wants to break it down for you about the HP A1410N Media Center they have on sale for a mere $644.97 (after $55 mail-in rebate): it's old and should not be used. Maybe they're trying to cover their asses in case of buyer's remorse (obsolescence is now instantaneous), maybe it's one of those rare instances of truth in advertising, or maybe, just maybe, they're using some powerful reverse psychology on us, telling us not to use the HP A1410N so that we'll lust after it that much more. It has to be something, because we just ordered a half-dozen of 'em.
