Over the weekend, a handful of people took the advantage after the Palo Alto, California based computer firm, Hewlett-Packard Corp. (HP) made an error on its website of letting consumers buy its “HP ZBook 17 G2 Mobile Workstation” for less than 2 USD (roughly 6780 UGX, 1.58 Pounds).

The computer firm immediately took its UK store offline on Saturday to resolve the error, saying it would not honor the sales that had been made.

“We apologize sincerely to impacted customers for any inconvenience caused,” the firm said in a statement.
