Re: my friend got ripped off
Personally I (Damn edit) would NOT buy a computer from any of the larger stores, such as Asda, Tesco, PC world etc.
And definately I would stay away from places like Dixons, and Comet.
Your friend should be able to take it back, if it is not what he wanted, and they have to accept that, you have a 14 days period where it can be returned.
I personally buy most of my stuff online, and use places like this, or the message boards on the site where I am buying from to ask any questions. Or for me off to the local computer fair, I love that place.
AMD Athlon 64, 2200 (11x200) 3700+,ASRock 939S56-M, SiS 756 AMD Hammer,NVIDIA GeForce 6600LE, 2048(DDR SDRAM), Maxtor 5A300J0 300GB 5400RPM, Ultra ATA/133)
Time tells all, but if the moment in time passes and you miss it, then you will remember it for ever!!
