Re: AMD Outsold Intel????
I have a similar story too. We have a local CompUSA and their X2 systems are all sold out. I overheard a customer and a sales guy talking the other day. The sales person said that it was the hottest thing to hit the stores. Seems like everyone knows about AMD. They'r reputation is finally known.
When I bought my laptop last month (the Turion in my sig), I had to go to (was it 4?) different CompUSA stores to get it. I mean, damn, every store that I went to were all sold out. So do you know how I got it? The laptop I got was actually the last one placed on hold for someone else. That's right. Placed on hold for someone already. The reason why the store manager agreed to give it to me was because I was willing to pay for the two year protection plan and the original customer the laptop was intended for didn't want to the plan. So I got it...
I told the manager what will happen to the customer when he comes back for it. He told me that he will make a phone call to have it shipped from a CompUSA from Culver City, California. They had 2 left......OMG, they are HOT. Had to wait awhile in suspense when he made that call to see if I can definitely get if for sure.
