Default should I sue the shopping channel for false advertising?

so anyway, the shopping channel in canada was having a dell blowout thing or something, and this "know-it-all" computer dude was advertising the stuff. There was a notebook that had an intel core duo processor at 1.63 ghz or something, and hes like "say goodbye to old 1 processor computer because what you get with this computer is 2 processors". Theres 1 thing to sue them for...false advertising. A FUCKING NOTEBOOK CANT HAVE TWO PROCESSORS. ESPECIALLY A DELL. well the second computer was a desktop and it cost 1,399 canadian dollars, and hes like "its one of the best". What a shame, the computer only had 1 gig of ram, a 160 gig hard drive, and one dvd-rw drive. But the part that angered me the most, was the part where he said the graphics card it has... the radeon x300 (which is equal to a radeon 9250), could run any game on on the market crystal clear. so...should I sue them for making 2.5 thousand people buying the stuff believe that a laptop has 2 processors and a x300 can run any game on high settings?

Ok sure i want to see you sue them go ahead. Please tell me when you do this, what kind of lawyer do you have. Its not as easy as you make it out to be. Are you even seriouse or just making a thread. For one From what you wrote you didnt even buy a laptop or desktop. Well if we say yes are you really going to call you lawyer and say yeah lets sue them. By the way how old are you just wondering
