Am I an asshole or an idiot?
#1
I emailed Alienware because I needed more ram for my computer here is their reply.

Alienware Wrote:Regarding the memory upgrades for your system, you can install 2 1GB DDR2 PC4200 memory sticks in your Area-51 m5700 system, DDR2 PC4200, for a total of 2 Gigabytes of RAM Memory. Your computer has only 2 memory slots integrated on it. This means that if you want to upgrade to 2GB, you will have to discard the memory already installed in the mobile system. We currently have a limited stock of this type of memory.

An estimate price for the requested memory is $143.27, per stick of RAM. This means that the upgrade price will be approximately $286.54. The price may vary depending on where the items are shipped to and taxes that must be applied depending on your area.

I can get the same ram online for $16 per stick. What the fuck is this am I missing something here. That doent include labor that is just for them to ship me the ram. Labor would be another $250!

Holy crap! Is it running Vista? 512MB RAM + Vista = Hell. Yeah, those RAM prices are freaking ridiculous. Speaking of ridiculous prices, I hate buying shit from brick & mortar stores anymore. You can get shit for half the cost online. [SIZE="3"]Ummmm WTF?!?!?! The banner ad at the top of the screen right now is for GAY.COM!!! WHAT THE FUCK?! Ha ha ha! Hooch! Is there something that you want to tell us?![/SIZE]
A long time ago my daddy said, "Son, always cut away from yourself with a knife, treat every firearm as though it's loaded and never update your BIOS during a lightning storm".
