...new one about every 6 years.My plan was to "Shop Local" but nobody local makes Dell computers.
Actually, while I was (virtually) running around on CyberMonday, I did almost buy a computer at Staples which has a store in Mt. Pleasant.
They had an excellent HP computer, with a too-good-to-be-true price on the one I wanted BUT...it was out of stock.
In fact, they seemed to be out of stock on all the bargains. What a shame for them, missing so many sales.
Maybe I should have increased the amount I was willing to spend? You know, to help them out. Yeah, right.
So I went to the Dell site and found what I was looking for to replace my 6-year old Dell desktop. They are making it for me right now and will send it in a few days. I didn't need a monitor because I bought a 22" one a few months ago.
Seems like most computers come with a monitor so that must be the real money-maker.
When I was completing the online paperwork, I saw something that is new (to me): you could indicate the use of TWO credit cards to spread the purchase amount around a bit!
Guess that's a sign of the times.
