    Hardware Bargains - Open Thine Wallet

    This happened yesterday right as I got an email from them saying "it's only available at another supplier" Like FML I thought you were the supplier? FirstGroup, Corex, Rectron, Pinnacle, etc should all be sub-distributors for AMD, with clear amounts of stock available at FS.

    Hardware Bargains - Open Thine Wallet

    This. I've had too many companies come back to me recently with "out of stock" when it's clearly been a pricing error. I don't want to let this go because I kinda want an upgrade, and first-(group) have also kinda screwed me over in the past. I wouldn't even care if they came back to me and said...

    Evetech payment

    A wild price tracker appears! (yes, another one)

    Damn, this is really cool! I'd LOVE to see this expanded to the various PC hardware e-tailers just to give an idea of the price fluctuations on their sites. Maybe a "watch" feature which alerts you when price goes below a certain threshold?

    I need help with getting a laptop for someone

    That really isn't bad at all! CPU in that should be a 5800H and the 3050 will be better than a 1650 for sure. Takealot definitely has that credit terms feature too when you're paying by card.
