Oh lord. Does it come with a 56K modem or 6 months of free (presumably AO-Hell) internet? Some site is in desperate need of an update.
If you think this is 2005 you should head over to QVC some time. Or that commercial that talks about getting one for easy payments and boasts you get a software upgrade to Microsoft Office Starter 2010!
They're the same company who made a site/quiz thingy I had to use for a sociology class a year and a bit ago (It was another My*classhere*Lab). The quizzes we had to do on that site only worked on IE 6-8. No Firefox, Chrome, Safari (sorry Mac users. I had to use my Windows desktop to do the quizzes. It literally would not work on any browser on my Mac.), Opera and the list goes on. I was kind of shocked that they made people pay for that. Hopefully it's been updated because that was awful.
Also, that Sales Speak 101 section is priceless. 17" TFT monitor for $400. Or the mention of CRTs in general.
