Kudos to Max!
I rarely if ever look for prices online. Perhaps that's because I grew
up without the net (altho I got on it way before most of you, in 84,
when I was 30...add another 10 years until the advent of the Web, and
another 5 before Internet Commerce really got going) so my shopping
habits are we established.
In any case, my good buddy Ed used to talk about New Egg and Zip Zoom
Fly. Well gee, whenever I wanted to look for memory or disk I never
found anything as good as Best Buy on sale.
Of course, they do beat the regular prices, so there is room for both,
and googling for an item lets you look thru many online stores.
Best Buy has decent service and return policy too.
