Shouldn't it be $649 retail value, on sale for $299? That thing is a piece of garbage...I'm positive you can find laptops even at Best Buy for less than half that price and with better specs, too. Nothing like preying on uninformed consumers for profit!

I gave them the benefit and said max of $500. You could build an ultra gaming PC for that "retail price".

So I'm flicking through the TV guide and notice QVC showing technology. Oh cool, a Dell laptop, I'm bored I'll watch. Then I notice the "retail price" and my jaw dropped.

Saw the thread title and thought you were referring to the itching and burning you've been having.

Disc as much as possible. The only digital games I download are the ones offered by PS+ or the Walking Dead Season Pass.

I would love to see Pokemon with Kinect features.

  • You say the name of the Pokemon and then "I choose you!" while throwing you hand forward
  • Once your Pokemon is out on the field you just say their name and the name of the attack

@grantheaslip: For restaurant tips I believe the rule is 10% of what your total bill. So if my bill is $40 I normally leave $5 bucks. I sometimes leave a few extra dollars if my service was great. The only time I don't tip is if we have a group of 5 or more people. They normally they include the tip in the final bill.

@mosespippy: I was thinking the same but DLC and system updates shouldn't be using 56 GB's. Borderlands is probably the one game that gets patched and has the most DLC. If anything that should be the culprit.

I've been going to the same barber for over 20 years. I normally give him 2 to 3 bucks as a tip. Even if I'm low on cash I still tip the same. Christmas time I may give him $5.
