Yes and any way, they have diversed considerably at the supermarket and you can get heaters, and furniture now, so i spose getting comp stuff is no different at all.

quality or quantity?

Yes, not free, but much cheaper then retail. But it must be a non peripheral item. ie not printers, scanners etc. It must be a device directly attached to the system that is integral to it's operation, ie a mouse :)

No way. I don't even buy hardware from chainstores. (Well I wouldn't even if I didn't get them from myself).
You get what you pay for......
Took my sons rubbish TV back to the Warehouse after it died after 3 months and insisted they refund me. They were insisting on "policy to repair it as its over 1 month old). I won and went off and replaced it with a SOny for him. Cost more but I expect it to last longer than 3 months.
Same with PC stuff.

Maybe I should update that website (actually I hired someone to do it, but I keep distracting him by teaching him to fix computers and have started him on a crash course in networking).

Anyhow, Can't say I have ever charged anyone the website listed prices for OEM Xp, Tend to put together a package price.

Oh yeah, A mouse doesn't count, its a perpherial same as a printer, the component has to be internal.....Like an IDE cable...... :D

Last week Countdown supermarket was advertising USB flash drives for $29.95, I think it was. Was tempted to get one to see what it was like but didn't get there in the end. Was probably a heap of junk anyway. :rolleyes:

A computer-knowledgeable friend bought one last week from our local Countdown ( which has turned into a mini-Warehouse). Still working fine.

I think they were 128s. But having just looked at Pricespy, all sorts of outfits are selling them at ever lowering prices ....
The only time to buy PC stuff is later on .....

The bread would be stale, the cheese would be off (hard to tell though), the milk would be far from fresh and the nappies could be second-hand :D

Oh well at least they wouldn't have to say "please read the manual", well maybe for the nappies - "I'm sorry sir you wanted to buy DDR nappies, those you got aren't compatiable with baby 1.0"
