Many folks prefer a DVD drive laptop and a driveless pad. So basically notebooks without a DVD drive are sort of outdated. Best buy carries a ton of them. I think the driveless notebooks will likely lose in competition with the new pads being sold by Microsoft, Apple, and Samsung. Even a stupid truck driver like me can figure out your failed marketing strategy. Maybe I should apply for a $500K Director of Sales position with Best Buy and put away the keys!
I don't get it either about BBY but I do like my HPQ laptop I bought around Black Friday with very good specs around $400 with tax and 2 years on top of the manufacturers warranty in BJ's right where I live. I also bought my kids laptops in BJ's with similar specs and prices. BJ's warranties are incredibly cheap that's why I buy cameras, printers laptops and other devices there. Other stores and direct sellers kill you on the warranty and some on price. My warranty was $40 for the 2 extra years same for my kids.
You need to brush up on technology pal. Loading software applications, creating personal movie DVDs to send to family, watching movies while away from home, archive survellence videos of gang members in hoodies who spray symbols on our tractor trailers. (Obama voters)
