Went over yesterday to set up a computer for my fiance's Aunt.
She bought a computer from the company I work for, so I get a decent discount. Nothing crazy, but a discount none the less. The computer they got is $700 on our company website (I get it for $650 plus some free upgrades like storage and memory).
Anyway, I spoke to them about it a month ago and told them what it would cost (they're poor, and pretty dumb with their money), so I was surprised when they said they needed the computer set up since I figured I'd be going online to order one for them.
I figured they wen't to Best Buy or some place which is still cheap and would have basically cost what it does on my company website.
They tell me they paid $1600 for a computer I could have gotten for $650. I was dumbfounded. I guess that $1600 includes crazy arse interest charges and financing fees?
They could have bought a souped up iMac for the same damn price they got their $650 computer for.
