Sounds like classis specmanship* to me. :)

specmanship, n: The art of misrepresenting capabilities of a device for 
marketing purposes, typically by saying it will do X and Y when it 
cannot in fact to X and Y at the same time.

This might be a good time to check if those extra "undocumented" 
features like SATA are actually wired up. ;)
