Windows 7: For Laptop Owner's Only

If they bite on $350, plus the 3 year warranty...I say go for it. If HP has no record of it, most likely it was a purchased as new, and returned before opening...much like some of the things found in Dell's Outlet store.

Just talked to the Electronic Mgr. and went over the scenario of the bate and switch with one of his employees.
He went to the computer and checked it and took the $ amount down so I said how about
$350 + the Sam's 3 year warranty thrown in. I told him to check from his side as to WHY it was returned or if it had been opened for repair.
HP has no record of them having it returned to them. HP warranty runs out May 2011 then Sam's club would kick in.

So my friends, what would you do?
ps. You will not be held responsible for my actions!
That's quite a deal, sounds like they want you to have it. Was anything wrong with it while you had it?
Derek,
Nothing was wrong while I had it. Ran a bunch of tests and loaded some of my stuff like Malware and MSE. Was lacking all Windows updates and installed all of them at once to see if it hung up anywhere. Loaded all of them without any problems.

So did they accept your offer? If they do, I don't see how you would find a better deal.......legally.
