Default Best Buy - Notebooks vs Netbooks - 12-14-2009, 06:15 AM


I find this a little bit lying, because not all netbooks can watch streaming videos and all that. OR they can, but it's not necessarily the best.

I mean, I understand that it's because of the Atom processor, I just don't know if they do. lol

I don't care what Best Buy has to say about tech.

But thanks for the post, anyway.

Anyone who tries to market Monster Cables without feeling like a low-life, greedy, selfish, ******* who is robbing money from innocent people who do not know any better when making a TV purchase will never have my trust, credibility or respect. Best Buy FTL... shop elsewhere.

Wow. I feel the same way! I used to work for them. Trust me, they have no interest in 'helping the consumer' or 'caring for your shopping needs'.

One of my employees was charged $70.00 for a geek squad installation of a 6 month anti-virus package for their newly-bought computer.

SIX MONTHS for $70.
