I'll bet he's trying to trick the store, he's probably got the computer at home, he just wanted his money back. He's probably pissed at the store cuz he paid too much or something. There's no way a computer manufacturer would let a box full of wood go to a store and be sold like that.

lol bestbuy offers a servide to make sure that you dont get a computer filled with wood. their shouldnt have to pay extra to make sure your getting a computer, and not blocks of wood. Something around here happened like that at a local computer shop, in which an employee would take the computer and sell it bootleg and then fill the box up w/ random crap. When the customers complained the employee would tell him to come in when the manager was not around, and said nothing could be done. he eventually got arrested once police found it odd that multiple accounts about the same store had been made in a short period of time. lollerskates.

Thats another reason you should build your own computer :P

Exactly!

Although I've never custom-built a rig, but my next one most probably will be.

lol, yeah like wow... I would be really mad if they told me they couldn't do anything, but I don't think I would go as far as telling them I'll kill them. But I would be really mad :P
