I still think it's an attempt for him to cheat the store and get his money back. not that the manufacturer or best buy tried to cheat him.

So if you get a mouse, and a few planks of wood, you would still be happy?

I'd have to say it does sound like this guy is scamming. In the extreme.

I'd agree. I highyl doubt someone would bring some blocks of wood, and stuff in a computer case.

If I ever bought a computer from a store (which I'd never do), i'd have to check the insides now

Anyhow...it could be worse if you build one too...

You could get all the individual parts, in boxes from a post order to contain just wood... to have to complain to an internet store You'd have alot more boxes to send back..
