Well, it's from 2000. I think things are a little better now, maybe...

I think 2000 is before they were bought out by some Mexican-based firm. Have things changed?

NO, won't even waste the gas to go.

It is the B&M version of TigerDirect.

There's a reason it got the nick ChumpUSA eye popping smiley

I like to go there and get their computers to fold for me for a few weeks.

One in my vicinity has a nice guy in Mac section. Doesn't know much but smiles and is low pressure. Their Mac prices are retail or the returns are like $30 off. I just go to look at some of the laptop PC monitors. The new Toshibas are amazing.

My local CompUSA has an Apple employee, and he is fantastic.
He has even turned the tide, and has most of the drones committed to Mac.
We have another store 25 miles away, and it is more like the typical CompUSA.

Good for loss-leaders and discontinuted product fire sales. Not much else.

I find them more flexible to deal with regarding Apple products than Apple. Easier to return items (swap 'em out), that kind of thing. Other than that, they're neither here nor there.

Puke.

Only set foot in CompUSA in the most dire of emergencies, with no other options around.

I wait for a bargain or two. I can usually get hands on a product that I'm interested in, then go online.

No problems for me.

And there's an In-n-Out about 200' away.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I admit I do support their new online rebate system, but I don't like going inside their buildings. To think, I once tried to get a job there. ugh
